The Weston Charity Awards celebrate and support excellent charities working in the fields of Youth, Welfare and Community through a year of strategic planning support and unrestricted funding. The Awards are an initiative of the Garfield Weston Foundation and Pilotlight.
We are thrilled to be one of the 2016 Award winners. Kim Hughes – CEO says “It is fantastic news indeed and comes at such an important time for the Trust as we plan for our future. The work with Pilotlight over the next 12 months will give us the knowledge, skills and exposure the Trust needs to enable us to take a more strategic approach in developing our work and more importantly promoting our successes to gain further investment. We have a vision “Where ALL individuals have an opportunity to turn their lives around to improve society and to strengthen communities”. We want to continue to reach out and provide a voice for some of the most marginalised and isolated people, who’s criminal record is a major barrier ‘trying’ to secure employment and we believe Pilotlight will help us to take this forward”.
