Award Winning Bike Project in Greater Manchester
Dave Meadows, Bike Project Co-ordinator at St Joseph’s Approved premises has followed up the recent success of the MCF Bradford Bikery by also winning an award. Dave has won the HMPPS Choice Award at the 2017 ESF Award Ceremony.
Dave was nominated for the award after a visit from Andy Cole, the Operational Performance Manager for HMPPS. Both Andy and his colleagues were very impressed with the work Dave has been doing at St Josephs, and in particular they commended Dave’s patience and understanding when working with individuals with mental health issues. Andy felt that this, and the semi-outdoor conditions of the workshop at St Josephs were particularly deserving of recognition and therefore nominated Dave for the award.

“It was quite an honour to win the HMPPS Choice award at the 2017 ESF Award Ceremony in recognition of my work for the Margaret Carey Foundation at St Josephs Approved Premesis. I enjoy the work I do and it’s always good to receive some positive recognition.”
Manjit Maude, Senior Probation Officer at St Joseph’s says: “Dave is very much part of team at St Joseph’s and his knowledge, skills and experience are valued by the team and residents alike. He brings a professional approach to his work and engages our residents to ensure good outcomes. He always communicates in a timely manner with staff and ensures relevant information is passed on.”
