NCS Team of the Year – KCF, SSH Sensory Garden

The FF awards saw the top 4 Future Foundations NCS teams from 2014 compete to be awarded team of the year. The 4 teams from the Summer and Autumn programmes presented their projects to a panel of judges before the main award ceremony. Strive2Provide had signed up over 200 people to the organ donor list, Self-Belief  partnered with the charities Mind and Neuro Foundation getting people to write positive messages to attach to the Positivity-Tree, Remember Me created an information booklet on Alzheimer’s encouraging young people to have more awareness of the disease and volunteer in care homes in a buddy system. Undoubtedly, 3 amazing project.  However the one that took our Team of the Year was SSH Sensory who raised over £1000 to create a sensory garden in a local primary school. Since graduating the team won a further £2000 funding and have created a second garden in another school working with over 30 volunteers. Check out their facebook page to watch their video’s and stay up to date with all their future plans.

One team from the 2015 NCS Summer Graduation will be invited to attend and present at the FF 2015 Annual Awards in London, which will take place early in 2016. 


Student of the Year – Catherine Lawrence

Catherine took part in NCS Autumn 2014 and was the project leader for the ‘The Creative Space’. She was an amazing project leader creating fantastic reports and spreadsheets each week tracking all the team’s hours and successes. She was extremely organised and always got things done on time and to a high standard as well as overcoming a lot of challenges during the programme. Catherine is not always standing at the front but works hard behind the scenes to get things done and drive the team forward. She is passionate and committed to social action.

We will invite our 2015 NCS graduates and staff to nominate for this award later in the year.
