Community Roots network wins local Mental Health award

Posted on 2 July 2021

We are thrilled and proud to announce that the Community Roots network has won the ‘Mental Health’ category award of the Community Star and Care Awards 2021.

Funded by NHS Brighton and Hove CCG and Brighton and Hove City Council, Community Roots brings together 16 local providers to strengthen, develop and integrate mental health support for different levels of need, with Southdown as lead provider.

Roisin Murphy, Partnership Manager for Community Roots said:

“I am delighted that the Community Roots network has won the award in the Mental Health category. This award is an acknowledgement and testament to the fantastic work of all our partner providers across the Community Roots network. I would like to thank them all for their dedication to delivering important mental health and wellbeing support to people across Brighton & Hove, particularly during such an unprecedented and tough 15 months.”

Now in its 19th year, the Sussex Community Star & Care Awards are hosted by the Brighton Argus to recognise individuals and organisations who have become “pillars of the community over the last 12 months” – The Argus.

This year, the awards ceremony was hosted online as a Facebook live event which can be watched back by clicking here.

Huge congratulations to all the other deserving winners across the categories, more detail of which will be shared in The Argus next week.
