The gong was presented at the ALLIANCE’s self-management awards. 

An Airdrie-based charity has been recognised for its work supporting those affected by childhood sexual abuse with two awards in a week. 

The Moira Anderson Foundation won the community category award at the Health and Social Care Alliance's (the ALLIANCE) self-management awards. 

The charity was recognised for its Positive Steps support initiative, which offers a range of help including individual and peer support, complementary therapies and a 12-week self-management programme.  

Services are delivered from their premises in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, various locations in Glasgow and virtually, meaning they see people Scotland-wide.

The organisation, which supports people affected by childhood sexual abuse, was also honoured at the North Lanarkshire provost’s awards. 

ALLIANCE chief officer, Sara Redmond, said: “These awards spotlight the transformative power of self management in prevention, fostering a healthier, more resilient society where individuals take charge of their wellbeing and inspire others to do the same.”

The ceremony was hosted by Laura Boyd and attended by Gillian Mackay MSP and Jenni Minto MSP, Minister for Public Health and Women’s Health, and included speeches from the MSPs along with Darren Crocker, Winner of Self Management Champion of the Year 2022.
