Autism centre receives accolade

The Autism Early Intervention Centre has been voted Best Autism Treatment and Prevention Centre in the Caribbean by UK-based Global Health and Pharma Magazine (GHP) as part of its 2017 Social Care Awards.

Tomorrow's Voices Bermuda Autism Early Intervention Centre, which was anonymously nominated for the award last year, announced the news yesterday (THURS).

Thea Furbert, co-founder and chair of the board at Tomorrow's Voices, said the organisation submitted details and information about their work to be considered for the honour.

GHP is a quarterly magazine that reaches over 260,000 readers worldwide and is a resource for wellness professionals and healthcare-related supplier.

The Social Care Awards recognise individuals, teams and companies displaying the highest level of care, compassion and courage in one of the most important, yet challenging, industries. GHP rewards outstanding service and innovation within the field of social care in order to “celebrate the industry's finest and bravest”.

The award is given solely on merit to commend those most deserving. Along with the recognition of the award, Tomorrow's Voices also received editorial coverage about the Autism Early Intervention Centre in a special 2017 Social Care Awards supplement. A link to the supplement can be found here: http://www.ghp-magazine.com/2017-social-care-awards.

Ms Furbert said: “On behalf of the board of directors and the staff of Tomorrow's Voices we are honoured and proud to have been selected for the award for Best Autism Treatment and Prevention Centre for the Caribbean. Our goal at Tomorrow's Voices is to provide much needed quality services to those with special needs and to be recognised, let alone nominated, for such an award shows us that the work we are doing is being well received within the community and worldwide. This is a great achievement and I am very proud of our team.”
