Salford Royal’s corporate social responsibility rewarded

Congratulations to our Learning and Development (L&D) colleagues who have been recognised for their corporate social responsibility work promoting NHS careers to local schools, and working with the Prince's Trust employability programme.


The L&D team were last week (15 June) announced runners-up in the Project (Widening Participation) category at the Health Education England North West Learning Matters Awards.


The team were recognised for the work they have introduced over the past 12 months to support local schools with career advice and opportunities to experience working  in the NHS, and for supporting the very first Prince’s Trust ‘Get Into the NHS’ employability programme.


Claire Fretwell, Associate Director of Learning and Development at Salford Royal, said, “I’m very proud of the team’s hard work to set up new initiatives. It’s important to Salford Royal that we not only promote the range of careers available in the NHS, but that we also provide and support opportunities for young people in Salford to experience some of those careers with us.”


The Learning Matters awards, run by Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) and Health Education England (HEE), recognise the contribution that adult learning makes to individual, community and economic wellbeing as well as the continued development of the health and care sector. The wider Learning Matters campaign emphasises the importance of developing and harnessing all talent, and highlights the role and value of innovation along with a commitment to engage with and learn from patients, carers and the public. It also demonstrates a commitment to driving learning to promote social mobility and reduce health inequality.
