The award, established in 2014 by Jane Ellison MP, the Minister for Public Health, and supported by the Department of Health, recognises excellence and innovation in public health.
Gateway was joint winner of the award with The Big Life Group.
The award was presented at the Royal Society for Public Health conference on 22nd October at the King’s Fund, London.
Speaking at the ceremony Jane Ellison MP, Minister for Public Health, said: “Gateway Family Services and Big Life Group are outstanding examples of how organisations, large and small, can improve the life chances of the people in their communities, through developing local skills, knowledge and networks to target interventions to where they are needed the most.”
Michelle Smitten, Gateway’s employment and skills manager, said: “These awards validate the hard work that we do as an organisation. It is rewarding that our staff are acknowledged more widely for the support they provide to clients and it also highlights the fact that a small organisation like ourselves can have a large impact and make a difference.”
Congratulations to all at Gateway Family Services.
