REACH, Robbie and resounding success!

Chairman David Rodgers and REACH Chairmans Award Winner Lincoln Gombedza

On Thursday 10th November, colleagues, sponsors and guests came together at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Stoke-on-Trent to celebrate all the successes across the Trust at the staff REACH Awards for 2022.

Those who joined in person were welcomed with a complimentary mocktail and several exhibition stands, showing partnership between the Trust and our sponsor organisations; Port Vale Football Club, CACI, ItWorks, Dedalus and Unison. There were also stands for internal Trust teams, Combined Digital and a demonstration of the VR Delirium training for those who hadn’t had the chance yet to be immersed into the virtual ward experience.

For those who couldn’t attend in person, for the first time ever there was the opportunity to view the event online via a livestream and also in the metaverse, in virtual reality – for the best seat in the house!

It was a fantastic evening of celebrating staff, colleagues, volunteers and service users and you can see the final list of those who were Highly Commended and our winners for each award below and see the videos of each award being presented here.
