Staffordshire Youth Awards 2021

The Staffordshire Youth Awards 2021 was born out of the M.Y Voice Youth program delivered across the Staffordshire Moorlands funded through the Big Lottery. It was forged out of a genuine need to celebrate which came from the young people on the program during the height of the pandemic with an expressed desire that young people should be 'seen and heard’.  As a result the idea of a celebratory event championing the efforts of young people who have endured pressures and personal struggle often out the public gaze was born.

Compassionate Community Charter Status Award for Brereton Million

We are pleased to hear the announcement that Compassionate Communities UK have awarded Brereton Million the Compassionate Community Charter Status. 

Only two City Councils have been given the Compassionate Community Charter Status.  However Brereton Million are the FIRST community group in the universe to get this award. This is because of the amazing work the Covid Support Group have done during the pandemic, including the bereavement support and the continued support for residents around isolation and loneliness.
