Ryedale Carers Support has been recognised with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services for 2016
I wanted to share with you the good news that Ryedale Carers Support has been honoured with the Queens Award for Voluntary Services, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. We are one of three groups to get the award in North Yorkshire and 193 groups nationally. Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson MP said: “I would like to congratulate all groups who received this year’s Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, in recognition of their fantastic achievements. The huge amount of work and commitment these organisations put into their local communities is surpassed only by the passion and motivation of the individuals who volunteer. I hope these groups continue to inspire others to get involved and make a positive impact so that we can continue to build a more compassionate society.”
I would like to add my heartfelt thanks to our volunteers and trustees both past and present for their tireless work in supporting carers and older people in Ryedale. Every one of them, no matter how large or small their contribution, should feel equally proud of this amazing achievement. Ryedale Carers Support will receive the award from the Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire later this summer.
The Silver Line is a national confidential and free helpine for older peole open every day and night of the year. No question too big, no question too small, no need to be alone.
