TWO colleagues from a residential home near Llandysul have been named as finalists in the Welsh heats of the 2018 National Learning Disability Awards.

Rosalyn Redford from Garthowen, near Llandysul, has been shortlisted as Support Worker of the Year, and her colleague Amyleigh Normanton is a finalist in the category of Service Manager of the Year.

Garthowen is a registered residential home for adults with learning disabilities, dementia and/or physical disabilities which can be complex.

The group also has finalists in the categories of Supporting Older People, another Making a Difference shortlisting (in the English heats), two more Service Manager shortlistings, and for Regard itself recognition in the Best Employer category, as well as inclusion as a finalist in both the English and the Welsh heats for Breaking Down Barriers.
