Lee said: “It’s been a rollercoaster year but this is a lovely moment for both me and those who I support and work with. I have been working on a number of fronts to tackle the stigma and challenges around diversity and inclusion, and how they impact wellbeing.

“To be recognised is a moment of joy amongst the chaos and the fuel to continue making a positive difference to peoples lives.”
