2022 Shortlisted Nominee

Community Organisation Award: Disability


Exceptional Wirral-based charity, The Positivitree, works with families who have children (from birth to adulthood) with disabilities, special educational, medical or mental health needs. The Positivitree establishes supportive, empathetic, non-directive and respectful relationships, based on trust and care that enable parents and carers to look after their personal health and wellbeing which in turn enables easier access to services that support their child’s needs in a way that is accessible, equitable and results in positive outcomes. Their model uses a blend of peer support to help navigate the world of SEND including applying for grants and benefits and accessing support in schools. Their hosted social activities and events are reducing isolation and improving wellbeing within the parent-carer community.
