As part of our aim to build closer ties with local communities, we have been working with the renowned BRIT School on developing inclusive theatre workshop sessions for people we support and students at the School. Over the past year, we have also been developing a special award for students who make a positive contribution to their local community.
‘The Making a Difference Award’, launched in September last year, rewards those BRIT school students who go the extra mile to enable people in the local community to flourish, contribute and lead the life they want to lead. Candidates have been nominated by their teachers and peers, and the winner will receive a £500 prize award when the award is announced in July at a ceremony at the BRIT School.
Here below are the five short-listed candidates who have been chosen by The BRIT School, people we support, and staff within Certitude. We really felt inspired by their dedication to supporting others and creating positive change within their community. Best of luck to all of them!
