Friday, 8 March 2019

Fife Employment Access Trust (FEAT) have begun celebrating their 25th anniversary in style, by winning a Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) Award for their work supporting those with mental health problems to find employment.  The prize, which was presented in Central London by Baroness Michelle Mone, includes a £10,000 grant and promotion of the organisation’s vital work before an audience of influential politicians, journalists and philanthropists. The Awards are also known as the Oscars for the Voluntary Sector.

Andy Cook, Chief Executive of the Centre for Social Justice think tank, said “FEAT innovates new techniques and approaches to solving some of the most pressing issues in the field of mental health. Among these, the inability to find and maintain regular work is paramount.“The dignity of work and the confidence it instils are crucial to solving mental health problems.“The CSJ recognises FEAT’s innovation, efficiency and compassion in helping people find work and rebuild their lives. We wish them another twenty-five years of stellar achievement.”
