Children's scheme in Suffolk wins top award

A children's services scheme working with disabled youngsters, run by Suffolk County Council, has won a local government award.

The Activities Unlimited project has been awarded a best achievement award in the MJ (formerly the Municipal Journal) awards.

The project provides short breaks and activities for Suffolk children and young people who are disabled.

The MJ Awards were set up to promote achievement in council services.

Councillor Graham Newman, portfolio holder for children, schools and young people, said: "I am delighted that Suffolk County Council has received this award and that Activities Unlimited has been recognised nationally - what a fantastic achievement.

"The team have demonstrated what can be achieved when you put creative forward thinking into services for children, young people and families."
