cypn-awards-2016-098-winner-009Our Full-Time Volunteering programme won the Youth Volunteering and Social Action Award at the (CYPN) Children and Young People Now  award ceremony in central London last night.

The CYPN awards have become the gold standard for professionals working with children, young people and families. Set up 11 years ago, the judges seek to shine a light on projects that can demonstrate commitment, innovation and creativity in addressing some of society’s toughest problems, and changing the lives of vulnerable individuals, families and communities.

Oonagh Aitken, Chief Executive of Volunteering Matters, said: “I’m delighted that full-time volunteering has been selected as the winner of the youth Volunteering & Social Action category for the Children and Young People Now awards. Our project staff and volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that our beneficiaries receive the support they need, and are deeply committed to bringing about positive change in our communities. It’s really fantastic to see all their hard work recognised in this way.”
