Congratulations to Greg Nixon, Service User from Derry/Londonderry who’s care team Potens (NIDCA) won the National Learning Disability and Autism Award (NI) for ‘Breaking down barriers’.

Lisa Finlay, Behaviour Therapist, Positive Behaviour Support Service explained:
“Since moving to his supported living placement Greg has made some great achievements which at a time were very difficult for him, including accessing health care and community participation, including his love of horse riding. Greg’s team go above and beyond to support him make memories and incorporate his special interests.
We are delighted that Greg’s care team Potens (DCNI) have been recognised in this national award held recently at the Hilton Hotel Belfast.
