We are delighted to announce that KDC’s Big Pathway project received the award for Community Project of 2017 at the 11th Annual First Ark Impact Awards last Friday.
The award recognises the Big Pathway as a project “that really stands out and has made a difference within your community”.
We were so proud to be acknowledged amongst lots of fantastic community groups and services from across Merseyside. The Big Pathway has enabled 47 adults with Learning Disabilities to build their self-confidence, learn new skills and work towards getting into paid employment. Read more here. The award will hopefully help to secure further funding to run a second programme in 2018.
Special mention goes to the runners up, the Opening Doors Befriending Service which is combating social isolation through its volunteers who support and encourage elderly people to get out and about at least once a week.
A new programme will be launched in 2018 and we are looking for volunteer support. If you are interested, then click here for more details.
