The Power of One: autonomy and the authorising environment
Steven is typical of many individuals in Perth & Kinross Council, and the professional and personal fulfilment Steven gains from his work is evident to all who work with him.
In 2013, the Council launched the Angel's Share initiative, which offers seed corn funding to innovative projects. Based purely on his personal knowledge of using technology to benefit his own children, he grasped the opportunity and cultivated an idea to help those with learning difficulties, in a similar manner. He was awarded funding to develop his concept, and the benefits to service users continue today with the same client group but additionally others have learned of his innovative idea and adopted the approach for different client groups.
Since then, Steven has become an unofficial ambassador for the initiative, encouraging his colleagues around him to take part, sharing his enthusiasm and helping others.
