Yorkshire Autism AIM and Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust have shared an award for their partnership work on doing sensory audits of mental health inpatient settings. The trophy was given at the Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership’s Celebrate as One awards on Friday 19th October in the partnership category. There were two other winners.
The award was given for the sensory audit work that both did. It involved visiting mental health inpatient settings and checking to see whether there were any potential sensory issues that might prove difficult for autistic people in those spaces. To date, the sensory audits have been taken at venues in Leeds.
Well done to everyone involved from Yorkshire Autism AIM and Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust. This includes Owen, Georgia, Jack and Eli from the Yorkshire Autism AIM team, as well as staff from Asket Croft, Asket House and The Becklin Centre for inviting us to visit them.
The team would like to thank both Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership for their support. They also thank Comic Relief for funding their work from the very beginning.
