Winner at the National Learning Disabilities 2014 for Outstanding Contribution
John Williams, FitzRoy co-founder won the Outstanding Contribution Award at the National Learning Disabilities Awards.
The awards, organised by Care Talk in association with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities, pay tribute to individuals and organisations who support people with learning disabilities, and celebrate excellence in this area. The Outstanding Contribution Award recognises an individual who has made a long-term outstanding contribution to the lives of people with learning disabilities.
Over fifty years ago, John Williams, a founding trustee of FitzRoy, worked with the founder Elizabeth FitzRoy as a volunteer, managing the charity whilst holding down a top job at the NHS. He gave his time because he was passionate in the belief that people with learning disabilities should lead ordinary lives and have the support they need to fulfil their potential instead of being hidden in institutional settings.
