New Leaf Showcase 2020 – Award Shortlist

The New Leaf Awards

The New Leaf awards are here to champion the incredible work put in by our teams, day in, day out, to support thousands of people across Cheshire reach their potential and get closer to employment.

Earlier in the year, we launched our New Leaf Awards and we received an incredible 138 nominations from both participants and colleagues.

The submissions showed the phenomenal respect and appreciation felt for people working on the programme so deciding the shortlist was a difficult task for our New Leaf Board.
