The Jericho Foundation has been typically busy over recent weeks.
Two of its young social enterprise employees scooped awards at the 2017 Star Apprenticeship Awards ceremony, held at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel on the 10th March.
Billy, one of Jericho’s catering apprentices, won the Hospitality Apprentice Award, while Oliver won the overall Star Apprentice Award. Congratulations to them both. You can read the full story over on the Jericho Foundation blog.
In other Jericho news, chief exec Richard Beard was present at the Prime Minister’s ‘Celebrating Civil Society in the Midlands Reception’ on Wednesday 29th March at 10 Downing Street.
Richard said, “We were delighted that the Jericho Foundation was given a special mention by Rob Wilson MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Civil Society. We will continue with our mission to provide post-National Referral Mechanism support to the survivors of modern slavery. One thing which would assist these brave people would be the confirmation of conclusive grounds guaranteeing benefits eligibility.”
