As the developers who designed these services with LCIL we are of course extremely happy to hear about this award.
Hi Jim, I think Carol has already let you know that LCIL has won a Breakthrough Independent Living Award under the Information category for the LCIL website and the Grapevine Online service. The judges were particularly impressed with the website and asked for the name of the person who designed the website. So much of the credit goes to you for producing our new website. Breakthrough UK is a user-led disability organisation so it has been a particular honour for us to receive recognition for the website and online service from this group.
Best wishes, Catherine Garrod, Grapevine, Disability Information Service
