A HOUSING association in Newent is celebrating an award recognising its commitment to creating work experience and training opportunities for local people.
Two Rivers Housing scooped the outstanding business contribution trophy at the Grow Gloucestershire Showcase Awards, run by Gloucestershire County Council in conjunction with its Yes2Jobs campaign.
The judges were impressed to learn how Two Rivers has supported apprentices through training programmes over the last six years.
Garry King, chief executive of the not-for-profit organisation, said: “The service we deliver is only as good as the people who provide it and this award is testament to our fantastic team that works hard for its customers.
“We are committed to helping all our staff achieve high standards and we believe in creating employment for local people where possible.
“We want to help them learn a trade or a range of skills that will set them on the path to a rewarding and successful career.”
