S4B and Brunswick Parish Church have been recognised for how their partnership has made a difference to the community.

 They have been nominated for Best Partnership for their efforts in establishing a Work Club for residents to provide internet access and support with CV writing and job searching. 

The Spirit of Manchester Awards, organised by Manchester Alliance for Community Care (MACC), celebrate and highlight the excellent work being carried out in Manchester’s voluntary and community sector.

Ross Hemmings, S4B regeneration manager, said: “We are really proud to be nominated for this award to celebrate all the great work that has been achieved with Brunswick Parish Church as a community hub since January this year.”

Reverend Simon Gatenby, from Brunswick Parish Church, added: “We are committed to the welfare and wellbeing of all within our community and this shortlisting has encouraged us that we are on the right track.

“This has empowered us and we seek out further opportunities together so that the health and wholeness of this wonderful community is further enhanced.

“We are pleased to partner with S4B and we have valued their help, energies and enthusiasm as we have sought to make up for the decline of some of the statutory services in our area.”
