Every family that comes home from their short break happier, less stressed and more confident is a sucess for us – but our website isn’t big enough to share everyones stories! Instead we’ve listed a few examples below of how our efforts have been recognised by outside organisations!
Celebrating Communities Award Winner – Scottish Charity Awards 2014
In June 2014 we were awarded the Celebrating Communities Award at the 2014 Scottish Charity Awards. Recognising the hard work of our volunteers, our innovative approach to delivering services and our efforts to promote the benefits of holidays to families.
Glasgow Living Wage Employer
We have recently been recognised by Glasgow City Council as a Glasgow Living Wage employer. Whilst we have always paid a living wage to our employees, we felt it was important to support the Living Wage campaign as many of the families we support can’t afford a holiday due to the fact they work hard but are so lowly paid they still live in poverty.
Glasgow City Community Champion Award Winners 2012
Following their win of the West area team award, our volunteers joined groups of volunteers from four other areas of Glasgow in being nominated for the city-wide Glasgow Team Award 2012 – and won! Humbled by the win – more so due to the incredible work the other finalists – our volunteers were quite literally speachless after their win!
Glasgow West Community Champion Award Winners 2011
The Community Champion Awards were established by Glasgow City Council and the Evening Times to celebrate the acheivements of Glasgow citizens. In January 2011 our volunteers were wont the West Glasgow Team Award in recognition of their work to provide short breaks to families needing them most – well done!
