We’re delighted to have been announced as the proud winners of the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber Charity of the Year award.
We will be using the £3,000 prize money to purchase USB wristbands to be distributed to young people. The wristbands will be given out through our Education and Prevention Project which works to educate and inform children and young people about the risks of running away. This project highlights to young people where they can turn for support aiming to prevent them from reaching a point where they think running away is their only choice.
The wristbands will be branded to promote the SAFE@LAST helpline and also include data and links with information for young people.
We’re thrilled to have been recognised with this award and grateful to Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber and award sponsors Duo Call for their generous support of our work.
