Last week, Safety Net held a celebration of 20 years of their work supporting children and young people in Brighton & Hove and awarded a number of people across Sussex for their contributions.
Safety Net has been working to keep children and young people safe both locally and further afield since 1995 and their awards ceremony, in The Paganini Ballroom at the Old Ship Hotel in Brighton, saw over 130 people come together to mark this special occasion.
Award winners ranging from children, young people and families through to volunteers and professionals working in partnership with Safety Net were thanked and awarded for their contribution towards the charities work. Each award winner received a certificate and trophy and were invited on to the stage to collect their award.
The evening was compered by director Terri Fletch and Ellie Talebian, with speeches, videos and talks from supporters, staff and young people who have all been involved over the years.
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 commitment, enthusiasm and creativity of all our staff, volunteers and supporters who have worked so hard to develop our services because they realise the importance of everyone pulling together as a community to keep our children safe”
