The John Greer Award
In memory of the late John Greer, who was a valued and skilled member of a Team that Eileen trained in the Prevention & Intervention programme in Liverpool in 2001 and with the kind permission of his wife and daughters, we have set up the John Greer Award which is accompanied by a book voucher of £100.
John was highly regarded by all his colleagues and Eileen speaks of him still as a kind, profound, courteous man whose contributions she greatly valued. The award is given to the participant on a 12 day Prevention & Intervention Training Programme who has made the most valuable contribution to the course and who has shown courtesy and respect towards fellow students to create a safe learning environment – in recognition of just a few of the many qualities which John possessed.
