Shortlisted for Alliance Self Management Awards

Portrait of Janet

We’re really thrilled that our colleague, Janet Crawford, has been shortlisted in this year’s Alliance Self Management Awards.

Janet is one of three finalists in the Self Management Champion of the Year category. A well-known figure in the local and national spoken-word scene, Janet brings all of her experience and enthusiasm to her inspiring creative groups for people using our Social Spark service.

Janet said “For me it’s about the possibilities which the creative spark can ignite. It’s creating spaces where people feel able to try new things and allow themselves a moment for themselves. Being alongside, listening to and appreciating people for who and where they are, unconditionally… as was done for me, when I needed support.”

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Scottish Parliament on the 8th October.
