Lord McNally gives keynote speech for Langley

Lord McNally joined a throng of those that had joined to celebrate the work of Langley at our Annual Review launch on 24th October 2013, reflecting on the highlights of the year past and looking forward to the year ahead of us.

His speech outlined the enormous changes that are coming to the Criminal Justice sector and the challenges and opportunities that this presents to charities like Langley to apply their expertise in this new arena.

The event, hosted by Baroness Hilary Armstrong in place of Baroness Kathleen Richardson who unfortunately could not be with us for the day, was a great success. As we enjoyed the last day of sunshine of the year, the Langley team were joined by our Patron Jonathan Aitken, Trustees, Fellows and award-winning staff and service users. Our invited guests represented all sectors that work with offenders from justice and probation to health specialists.

Following an opening address from Baroness Armstrong and welcoming comments from Chair of Langley, Anthony Howlett-Bolton, guests were invited to meet with staff to discuss the variety of specialist services on offer throughout the estate at Langley. Following the well received speech by Lord McNally, Tracy Wild CEO led the annual awards to staff and Service Users, some of which are as follows:

Melinda Grahn (Kent resettlement and The Shrubbery) won the Extra Mile award for her outstanding performance and level of care for those in her services.

Tony Harris (Boxtree Cottage) won the Award for innovation for development of IT and training for Service Users across the trust.

Roger Morter (Tekoa House) won the Unsung Hero Award for his role in the transformation of our new Rochdale service and his continual campaigning on behalf of those in his care.
