Awards and Accolades 

Sunny Dhadley FRSA

Awarded in 2014, to the volunteer programme that I initially joined and then went on to develop.

The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups. 

In 2018, I was shortlisted for The Guardian ‘ Public Sector Awards’.

I was one of five people that were shortlisted in the award for ‘Public Servant of the Year’ and eventually came ‘Runner Up’ in this category

Through desktop research and stakeholder analysis, potential European wide examples of good practice were identified within the fields of addiction, health and mental health care.

This resulted in a set of ‘top’ listings, of which the top 22 examples were selected. For these examples, additional questions were sent in to supplement the information from the questionnaire.

In 2018, the UK based model that I developed was one such example of best practice, in our work with ‘Ageing drug users’. This was due to the vast array of outcomes that were being achieved, the little comparative funding we received and the holistic manner in which I ensured that the service was delivered. 

Chartered Manager is the highest status that can be achieved in the management profession. Sunny became a Chartered Manager in 2014.

The Chartered Manager of the Year award recognises and celebrates the outstanding achievements and contribution Chartered Managers bring to their workplace and to their own personal development. In 2015, I received the CMI Chartered Manager of the Year award.  

In 2017, I was handed a ‘Dedication to the City’ award, which was decided by the Senior Executive Board of Wolverhampton City Council.

The main objective of this European project is to provide adult learning providers, organisations and local governments with tools and models of good practice, resulting in effective and inclusive adult learning and working opportunities for alcohol and drug users and reduction of alcohol and drug related nuisance in the public space.

In 2018, the model that I developed was cited as a European Model of best practice in supporting homeless communities. 

The Community Inspiration Awards is organised by the Community Foundation, to recognise outstanding contributions made by members of the community, staff from public sector organisations, charities, and businesses whose efforts have made a positive difference in the community and has inspired others.
In 2015 - I was the winner of this award, in the category for ‘Health and Well-being’
