Pamela Hargreaves our Chair spoke for us all when she said. “We’re over the moon. It’s is such an honour to receive it as a charity, it’s recognised the work of our founder Wendy and the sterling work she has done and we will continue to do in her honour.”

We are delighted to announce that we are now holders of the North East Better Health at Work Awards - Continuing Excellence Award.

Its a fantastic acheivement for a VSCE Organisation such as us and demonstrates our committment to health improvement, starting with our own staff.

Paralympic Champion Stephen Miller MBE says “I’m really excited to support Families First North East I believe in their ethos and ambition to help more families. It’s important when you don’t have confidence or belief in yourself that you have a positive support network around you. I’ve seen Families First North East give that life changing personalised support by instilling confidence and raising aspirations. I’d encourage you all to think about how you can help them continue their work now and, in the future”.
