SERVICE USER ACHIEVEMENTS: Monthly Awards - September 2021


The Winner is Colm!

Colm was choosen as the very worthy winner of the Service User of the Month Award for September 2021. 

Colm has been supported by Nua Healthcare since 2007. 

In 2018, Colm transitioned to Nua's Supported Living Services where he signed his own tenancy on a property in Laois with minimum support required. Colm is responsible for the day-to-day running of his accommodation, making sure it is clean and tidy, that he has enough food and that he keeps everything running smoothly.

During Colm's time with Nua, he has gained employment with Nua's Maintenance Department and the Finlay Motor Group. He also currently volunteers with a charity shop in this local community. Colm attends his local swimming pool and gym independently on a weekly basis and also visits his parents regularly.

From everyone in Nua Healthcare, we would like to congratulate Colm on becoming Nua's Service User of the Month for September 2021.

"I want to say thank you for awarding me this prize for Service User of the Month. I have a great team supporting me and they have helped me to do new things. I have started work in St Vincent DePaul two days a week but I am going to ask if they will allow me to do more. I started fishing this year with Niall and I really enjoy it, my Dad made the fishing rod I have, and I use it all the time. I have also started a college course on Forensic Psychology and Criminology which my support staff help me with. I have a great interest in this subject as I have always read crime books". Colm, Nua's Supported Living Services.
