News: Rotherham employee wins national award


Gary Fuller, a care assistant at a Rotherham care home has won the individual award for outstanding achievement in learning and training at the first annual Local Employment Partnerships (LEP) Awards organised by the Department of Work and Pensions. Stephen Timms, Minister for Employment and Welfare Reform, said: “I would like to extend my congratulations to each of the winners. Each of the winning employers has gone that extra mile to help some of the most disadvantaged jobseekers back into work, and is an example to other employers of the way that local businesses and communities can benefit from Local Employment Partnerships. Particular congratulations go to Mark Farrell and Gary Fuller on the personal achievements they have made to win their awards, which are true inspiration to others.” As a single parent, Gary had been on benefits over eight years and Lonnen Grove's Keeley Rowley said: "As soon as Gary started at Lonnen Grove it was evident he was going to be a real asset to us. He’s a very calm and consistent person. And if we hadn’t got this Local Employment Partnership, maybe his potential would have been undiscovered."
