Our Chief Executive, Monica Shafaq has been nominated for the first West Midlands Combined Authority Mental Health Star Award 2018.

The West Midlands Combined Authority asked people to nominate individuals who they thought made a significant contribution to improving mental health and wellbeing in their communities and workplaces.

Monica has been shortlisted for the award due to her instrumental role in the delivery of mental health and wellbeing services in her role as Chief Executive at The Kaleidoscope Plus Group and she has been shortlisted for the Sandwell area.

Monica was delighted to hear she was being recognised for such a prestigious award.

She said: “I feel honoured to have been selected for such a fantastic award!

“I’m truly thankful to everybody who went out their way to nominate me.”

The charity would like to wish all the nominees including Monica good luck for the awards ceremony which is due to take place on the 31st January 2018 at West Bromwich Albion Football Club.
