A CHARITY which provides work and training opportunities for people recovering from a mental illness unveiled a special plaque yesterday.

LEAVES won a Big Society Award from Prime Minister David Cameron in February.

And yesterday they unveiled a plaque sent from Downing Street at their premises in Darby Close, Cheney Manor.

The unveiling was completed by Swindon Council leader David Renard, who was accompanied by Coun Brian Mattock, cabinet member for health and adult social care.

Mr David Cameron said: “LEAVES provides an invaluable service supporting people who have battled mental health problems to take an important step into paid work.

“This Big Society Award recognises the achievements and commitment of everyone at LEAVES. I hope they continue to grow and reach even more people.”
