LPFT re-awarded silver award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

Published on: 26th July 2022

LPFT has been re-awarded the silver award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).

The award is available to all companies but is an acknowledgement of LPFT’s role in supporting members of the military community working here in the Trust, particularly within the Veterans service.

We were first awarded the silver award in 2017, but it has to be renewed every five years.

After getting the good news, Doug Wing, East Midlands Regional Lead, Veterans Mental Health Services, said the Trust will now work to progress to achieve the gold award over the coming years.

He said:

“I am delighted that we have been re-awarded with the silver award.

“This is a testament to the great work the Trust has done in supporting it’s veteran employees over the last five years.

“It is now our intention to grow and develop the Veterans service, and strengthen our ties with the local military community even further, as we strive to attain the gold award.”

The silver award will be officially awarded at the Bomber Command Centre near Lincoln on Thursday 13 October.

Doug will be joined at the event by Sarah Riseborough, a Community Support Worker in the Veterans High Intensity Service.
