Congratulations to Adrian Evans, an interchange manager at Humberside, Lincolnshire & North Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company (HLNY CRC), based in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire who has been named as a finalist in this year’s Interserve annual awards in the Ingenuity award category after picking up an award for the region.
Adrian has been praised as an inspirational leader who is well respected and liked by staff, service users and partnership agencies. He is a central figure within the local partnership and his experience, skill and tenacity mean he is particularly effective in influencing positive change for offenders and the community.
Adrian champions the benefits of working within communities and has helped hundreds of offenders across Lincolnshire as they have sought to re-habilitate themselves and find a new gainful position in society and the Lincolnshire communities in which they live.
Adrian has led a consistently high performing team. He is most proud of the reduction of the Ministry of Justice’s (MOJ) proven adult reoffending rate by more than 2% points below the England and Wales average which continues on a steady downward trajectory.
Martin Davies, chief executive of HLNY CRC, said: “We are so pleased that Adrian’s effort have been recognised in these awards which reflect so well on the caliber of our colleagues in HLNY CRC. He is highly respected by partners, staff and stakeholders and consistently represents
HLNY CRC with outstanding professionalism, great expertise, knowledge and creativity. He is very worthy of this award.”
Adrian said: “This is not just an award for me. It is testament to the efforts of the colleagues in my team across Lincolnshire that we have been acknowledged in this way. The successful outcomes we’ve achieved have been due to their immense hard work, dedication and commitment to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.”
Adrian’s award win follows recent accolades for his colleagues Shaun Anderson, who has been named as a finalist in the Social Capital Champion award, and Tony Connell, manager of Lincolnshire Health Support Service, who has picked up the Innovation & Lifetime Achievement award for the region.
Well done Adrian and good luck in the awards in London.
