Safe Families for Children is celebrating after being honoured with the Innovative Quality Outcomes Award at the 3rd Sector Care Awards ceremony in London.
The charity works with Manchester, Salford, Wigan and Trafford local authorities to support vulnerable families and reduce the flow of children into care.
Now in their fourth year, the 3rd Sector Care Awards showcase best practice from across the country and the ceremony honours innovation and care excellence from the not-for-profit care and support sector.
More than 548 vulnerable families in the north west who are struggling to cope have been supported by the charity’s volunteers.
Keith Danby, Chief Executive at Safe Families for Children, said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this prestigious award.
“The competition was very stiff as there were some impressive charities shortlisted.
“It’s a real tribute to the impact our volunteers have helping vulnerable families in their community.
“Safe Families is a community-based solution to a community-based problem. It’s bringing communities back to a culture of people helping people.”
