Student who helped others during lockdown is put forward for national award

by Tom Martin (September 2021)

A SELFLESS Edge Hill student has been shortlisted  in the Student Nursing Times Awards. 

Emma Grady, who  helped set-up  a  ground-breaking  social platform to connect students during  lockdown, is in the running for the Outstanding Contribution to Student Affairs award. 

Emma said that if she won it would be “for all the students at Edge Hill who are doing amazing things.”

The 34-year-old  said: “I’m quite shocked but really proud  because I feel like this is for all the students at Edge Hill who are going above and beyond but not shouting about it.” 

The mum-of-two is just starting the last year of an integrated Mental Health Nursing and Social Work  Masters  degree.

In addition to co-founding the Integrated Health and Social Care society, Emma was also a key organiser in a World Mental Health Day event.

Emma, a healthcare support worker for the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust, was also pivotal in the creation of The Student Social Work Hub, a virtual group set up by seven students from across the country to help students connect and share best practice  during Covid-19 lockdown.

The winners of the 2021 Student Nursing Times Awards will be announced in November.
