The Pro-Active Team from Active Prospects are Unstoppable!

The Committee has had the confidence to apply for, and win a national award; they have an increasing number of members; and they're achieving more of their aims than ever before!

When asked, how does winning the award make you feel, Dawn Boyce, a manager at Active Prospects expressed, “Attending the SCA Awards last year made The Pro-Active Team feel special, very excited, and proud we had been nominated. It was lovely to be in such a nice place, wearing our best clothes, and celebrating with so many other people. We were really emotional and excited, and it was a fantastic moment!”

The Committee Members really do live the values of the organisation:

  • Aspiring to make the Committee even more successful and effective
  • Trusting and Caring about each other, about the quality of the services the organisation provides.

  • Valuing the contribution each person makes, and ensuring each person has a voice and is listened to & Enabling every member to participate in all the different things they offer and do.
