Earlier this month we reported that had been shortlisted in the Infinity category in the Your Housing Group’s Galactic Awards
On Friday we attended their awards ceremony in Chester, and are delighted to announce that we won!!
Jo Wilkinson, WYC Targeted Programme Manager attended the event with Alex Mitchinson and explains further; “we were nominated for the partnership with Verve Place. During the award introduction the organisers spoke of the number of young people we have supported into employment, education and training through our ASDAN employability programme
“They went on to speak of the mental health support we provide through one to one mentoring, personal development programmes and gym sessions, and finally they talked of our latest programme, Moving on Up, aimed at supporting young people at risk of homelessness by providing life skills to enable independent living.
“I’m so proud of the whole team for the amazing work they do with the young people living at Verve Place. Several our programmes are now embedded into the education offer at the foyer and we will continue to work closely with them in the future to ensure we can support Verve residents as much as possible.”
