As well as the Pioneering Care Partnership’s chief executive being shortlisted for Charity Leader of the Year, PCP celebrations are continuing after finding out they’re also a finalist for the highly-coveted North East Charity of the Year.
PCP were nominated by Livin for recognising that to make communities great places to live we must work in partnership to raise aspirations.
Livin has worked with PCP for a number of years and felt sure that they were worthy nominees.
Livin regeneration manager Andy Coulthard said: “The PCP has had a positive impact on local communities since it was established 20 years ago.
“They are a worthy nominee with proven results having provided over 370 employment opportunities, generated in excess of £28.7m in charitable income and attracted volunteers giving 77,000 hours of their time.
“What really stands out for us, is the difference the PCP makes to people’s lives, in supporting communities and enabling us to deliver employment, health and wellbeing services to our tenants.”
PCP chief exec Carol Gaskarth added: “The nomination from Livin was wonderful and to be shortlisted as a finalist by the judging panel is a true privilege.
“We can’t believe we’re down to the last 3! This is a testament to everyone’s hard work, passion and enthusiasm.
“I am proud to work with such an amazing team and no matter what the result is on the night, I think the staff and volunteers are winners everyday.”
The outcome will be announced at the Awards night on Thursday (October 17).
