Charity celebrate 20 years of supporting young people

A night of glitz and glamour to celebrate 20 years of Brighton-based charity, Safety Net and their ongoing work supporting children and young people in Brighton & Hove.

Safety Net has been working to keep children and young people safe both locally and further afield since 1995. To mark this special occasion, an Awards Ceremony will be held to say “Thank You” and to celebrate some of the contributions that have taken place by local people over the years. Safety Net

The charity, who support children through anti-bullying and safety projects in local schools and support parents and carers through one to one family support, group work and parenting courses, will be awarding a number of those who have given their time over the years including service users, staff, volunteers and supporters. 

The event is set to be a fitting evening to mark Safety Net’s 20 year Anniversary, acknowledging all the hard work and successes that have taken place over the years with speeches, videos and talks from supporters, staff and young people who have been involved.

Safety Net Director, Terri Fletcher said, “I am so proud that we are celebrating our 20th year of working with local children, young people and families. When I started out in this project as a student 20 years ago I really didn’t imagine that the organisation would grow to the extent that it has; but it is thanks to the hard work, enthusiasm and creativity of all our staff, volunteers and supporters who have worked so hard to develop the work because they realise the importance of pulling together as a community to keep our children safe and helping them to develop the skills to take their place in the world”.  

The event will take place at the Old Ship Hotel on 25th November and will be a fun filled evening with compère Ellie Talebian from Latest TV.
