Success at the North East Charity Awards

More than 400 people gathered at Hardwick Hall in County Durham to celebrate the very best of the voluntary sector in a glittering event as local and national charities were crowned winners and runners up at the North East Charity Awards.

The Children’s Foundation team were honoured to have been highly commended for the ‘Uniquely North’ category, celebrating charities who celebrate and embrace the North east in everything they do!

The North East is renowned for its strong and distinctive sense of community and shared identity. The region has a rich, deep culture and a long history of ingenuity and innovation – from the birth of steam to the latest developments in our creative and digital industries.

Similarly, The Children’s Foundation rooted programmes have been proudly supporting the health and wellbeing of North East children and young people. Whether Stockton or Berwick, Whitehaven or Tynemouth, the Foundation focuses on the relief of distress, disability and disadvantage.
