The Centre of Excellence award was formally presented by Helen Tait, Managing Director of NAPPI Uk, to Heathcotes' Managing Director David Harrison at a ceremony held at our Head Office in Chesterfield on 5th December. Speaking at the event, David said, "This is a fantastic achievement and one that I'm really proud of - in a time when local authorities are increasingly seeking to reduce our fee income, we've continued to invest in NAPPI training and as a result, I believe that Heathcotes is one of the leading providers of genuinely specialist support for individuals with learning disabilites, complex needs and associated challenging behaviours."

Speaking after the ceremony, Helen Tait added, "I was really pleased to award Centre of Excellence status to Heathcotes; they're an organisation that has always embraced change and taken their responsibilities towards the people they support very seriously.
