The CEO of Wirral-based charity Stick ‘n’ Step has doubled the amount of support given to families since taking over four years ago.
Amy Couture joined the cerebral palsy charity in 2016 and since then has seen a new centre opened in Runcorn, Cheshire and continued to support young people from the Wallasey centre.
The huge growth of the charity now means that over 100 children and families affected by cerebral palsy are now being helped with free conductive education classes. The aim is to give young people the skills they need to be more independent.
Amy has now been nominated in the Third Sector category in the IoD North West & Isle of Man Director of the Year Awards in recognition of her significant contribution to society and charity.
Chair of Stick ‘n’ Step Rob Shorthouse, who is head of IT Architecture at Co-op, said: “Amy’s dedication and commitment to increase capacity at Stick ‘n’ step has enabled the charity to have a positive impact on the lives of even more children in the region.
“She has built a fantastic team at Stick ‘n’ Step that we are all really proud to be part of.”
The annual awards are set to be held in September at Hilton Manchester.
