Colleagues from Cree Studio have made their pitch to the judges as they take part in the final of the Scottish Social Services Council’s ‘Care Accolades’.

Cree Studio is an innovative music and short film recording project run by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s adult learning disability day service in Newton Stewart and Turning Point Scotland that has been shortlisted in the category – Working better, working together.

The team travelled up from Dumfries & Galloway to Dundee to make a presentation to the judges.

Stuart McHarg, supported in Newton Stewart led the presentation.

Dave Bleasdale, Operations Manager at Turning Point Scotland, Cree Studio music teacher Paul Brown and ARC rep  Paula Ladavis  also contributed.

Operations Manager Dave Bleasdale said:

“We are absolutely delighted to reach the final and it’s great recognition for everyone involved who are the driving force behind such a creative and innovative scheme, that brings a lot of pleasure to those that use the project.

I know everyone at Turning Point Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Council will be keeping their fingers crossed for Perth. But regardless, just to reach the final is worth celebrating.”

Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Social Work, Councillor Andy Ferguson, said:

“Cree Studio is a shining example of working in partnership. The relationship with Turning Point Scotland is strong and fruitful and benefits some of the most vulnerable in our community.”
