Congratulations to our five winners for the Final Round of Innovation Awards in 2014.

Sarah Metz won the Hot Iron Award for her idea of “Snoezelen Multi Sensory Environment Room”.

Sarah will be supported to put up some ‘multi-sensory’ rooms around Rise, and she has started collecting some super ideas for her project. Now that’s a keen innovator!

In addition to Sarah, we had four Spark Award winners:

  • Sophie Bennett’s “Toolbox Videos” idea
  • Fiona Durrant’s “Put a Procedure out of its Misery” idea
  • Nicole Wilkin’s “Rise Happy T-Shirts” idea
  • Melissa Burford who left Rise to pursue her studies, for her “I heard a great story” idea

As 2014 wraps up, a new Rise Innovation Forum has just been appointed for 2015 and we look forward to receive and support your ideas!
