Support for over 300 families a year recognised in Community Award.

Sharing Parenting’s Outreach Worker, Amba Keeble and Director, Suzanne Pearson receiving the FSB Community Award  at Newmarket Racecourse.

Sharing Parenting, an Evidence Based, Community Interest Company, based in Newmarket since 2009 was recognised for their on going support to professionals and over 300 families in the local area, at an awards afternoon held at the prestigious Newmarket Racecourse on Friday 5th April.

There were a number of awards being presented in the region. For the Community Award The Federation of Small Business (FSB) welcomed applications from small businesses that partook in initiatives that supported their local community in the East of England.

The FSB website stated:

We already know that the East of England boasts some of the best and most innovative small and micro businesses in the UK and we were looking to find the ‘best of the best’ and reward the hard work and innovation that characterises the SME community in this lovely part of the world.”

Suzanne Pearson, Director of Sharing Parenting, who attended the 2 course lunch with Outreach Worker Amba Keeble commented:

“In our category there were 5 very good organisations shorlisted, we really didn’t expect to win but were over joyed when we did!

We are a small but great team and cover a wide area in Suffolk, including Newmarket, Haverhill, Mildenhall, Brandon and Lakenheath.

We work with professionals and over 300 families each year delivering parenting programmes and one to one support with amazing outcomes and we are so glad that our support has been recognised by the FSB.

We believe that good quality, reliable parenting information and support should be available to all parents and professionals and we have been working hard to ‘normalise’ parenting support.

It is particularly fitting as it is our 10th birthday this year, which will also be celebrated, at our free parenting conference for parents and professionals in Newmarket on 10th July.”

The FSB booklet summed up the afternoon with it’s slogan ‘Celebrating Small business awards 2019 East of England – from small beginning come great things.
