"The award is for services to equality and diversity in the island. The start of my journey was in 2014 when Liberate started. As much as the award is for me personally, it is also about the work Liberate has done within the island to advance the conversation around equality and inclusion."

"Most veterans arriving in the island will settle in very quickly, but there is a minority who may need support and we have a very new service which has just started this year to address mental health issues for ex-service personnel."
