Our founder, Jackie Hewitt-Main OBE and Sue Blackburn, one of our long standing trustees and key supporters, have spent an evening in London at the prestigious Centre for Social Justice Awards 2018.
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) was established as an independent think-tank in 2004 to put social justice at the heart of British politics and make policy recommendations to tackle the root causes of poverty. The CSJ Awards is an annual high-profile event in the Westminster calendar which showcases and rewards grassroots charities and voluntary organisations from local communities throughout the UK that have developed effective and innovative ways of addressing a variety of entrenched social issues.
In her own inimitable style, Jackie managed to speak with several highly influential individuals during the evening, including the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith, chairman of the CSJ. She told them all about the fantastic achievements of our learners at the Cascade Health & Learning Hub here in Doncaster and declared the event a huge success.
