A Sudbury woman has been nominated for a national award for her work supporting people with learning disabilities.
Sue Snelling has been named as a finalist in the 2018 National Learning Disability Awards in the category of ‘The Manager’.
Sue, who manages two residential services, a supported living service and is also responsible for some outreach work in Sudbury, was nominated by her area manager, Sue Mace.
Mrs Mace said: “Sue balances effectiveness as a leader with an easy-going attitude, in an approach that is all her own and gets great results in every situation.
“She can quickly grasp and effectively deal with any problem, and knows how to create a solution that satisfies all parties. And her regular staff team can do this too, because she has helped them develop the right skill-set.
