Congratulations Kate, and Dean, and all your team – you’re fantastic champions for Shared Lives.
Kate was thrilled with the award: ‘Many people know, the development of a new Shared Lives scheme is not an easy feat, with many, many late nights put in by myself and the whole team over the last two years.

So thank you very much, and I shall treasure my award with pride.”
