In November 2023, we had the pleasure of attending the Youth Matters Awards at Chelsea FC. We were up for 3 awards; Young Leader of the Year, Young Worker of the Year and the Diversity Award. Connor Fenton brought home the Young Worker of the Year Award!

Our fantastic team in Cockfield Community Cafe won the Best Social Enterprise Award for the 2nd time at the Teesdale Business Awards back in November 2023. They were also finalists for the Best Community Engagement Award!

We have again secured the Better Health at Work Award, Maintaining Excellence! Our HR team promoted healthier lifestyles through initiatives such as menopause, men’s health and period poverty sessions. We’re hoping to continue this work into 2025!


Thank you to all our fantastic corporate partners, sponsors and donors! We couldn’t provide the services we do without your support.
