The Gary Seaman Award 2018

We are now accepting nominations for the Gary Seaman Award 2018: an award we present to outstanding practitioners or volunteers who have made a real difference. The award is given out at our annual Carol Concert.

Gary Seaman provided years of dedicated work to support carers and those affected by substance misuse, in the London Borough of Lewisham and beyond. He sadly died in June 2013, aged just 53. His partner, Michael, and two sons, Alex and Luca, chose Adfam as the charity to honour Gary’s memory; by establishing this annual award to recognise the outstanding work of a practitioner supporting families affected by substance use.

If you know of someone who has made all the difference to a family struggling to deal with drug and alcohol use, this award is a chance for that outstanding practitioner or volunteer to be recognised, celebrated and awarded, for making life better for a family through the support they’ve provided.

The winner will receive a prize of £150, plus a trip to Adfam’s Carol Concert on 5 December 2018, with travel and accommodation paid for by us. The Carol Concert will be held at St. Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, London. The closing date for nominations is 31 October 2018.
