We enjoy a great partnership with national organisation Business in The Community and work alongside their local Business Action on Homelessness team. Together we run weekly job clubs and have recently run the pilot employment scheme Get Ready!
Last Thursday we attended their North West Awards for Excellence evening with businesses and community from across the region represented. It was a great evening with inspiring stories of what businesses can achieve when working with and within local communities, there were also brilliant performances by the Northern Ballet School and 2 rappers from the Contact Theatre.
To top off a fantastic evening, Mustard Tree’s Chief Executive, Paul Wenham, was awarded the Sieff Award, recognising Mustard Tree’s collaboration with business for the benefit of our local communities. Paul commented “I am chuffed to accept this award on behalf of the whole Mustard Tree team. We have the privilege of working alongside a range of local businesses who add huge value to what we do. Local businesses have helped transform our garden, meeting rooms and shop, acted as mentors, job coaches and board members and have provided training and work placements for many of our service users. We are committed to seeing people from all walks of life working together and making Greater Manchester an even better place to live’.
