We are thrilled to have been awarded with charitable status. The Charity Commission for England and Wales has approved our application to formally become a charity. 

David Blacklock, Chief Executive at People First, said: “This is a huge milestone for our organisation and we are delighted to receive recognition that our work is of benefit to the public. We will continue to listen to our communities; provide support and information to some of the most vulnerable, and stand up for their rights and choices. Becoming a charity will only strengthen our ability to to what we do best, and create new opportunities in the future.”

Lisa Blackwell, Fundraising Officer at People First, said:

“Becoming a charity will open up funding and fundraising opportunities that were not previously available; this, combined with the help of the general public will enable us to continue to provide projects for those that need us the most.”
