In 2016 The Wallich launched a ground-breaking project called BOSS (Building Opportunities Skills & Success), funded by The Big Lottery Fund.
The BOSS Awards 2018 took place yesterday evening at Cardiff City Stadium and ARC’s CSR Development Manager, Christine Fitt, was humbled to be part of such a worthwhile occasion, celebrating the successes and achievements of BOSS clients over the last two years.
The BOSS awards 2018 recognised a broad scale of achievements made by BOSS clients, celebrating people’s personal accomplishments and resilience as well as contributions such as peer mentoring and milestones achieved in entering employment.
Christine says: “ARC Academy has been privileged to be a delivery partner for the BOSS project and to witness how their clients have met the challenges and barriers they experience with positivity and resilience".
The Boss Awards 2018 opened with a powerful and reflective speech from BOSS CEO Lindsay Cordery-Bruce, highlighting what we need to understand about homelessness, what we can do to support people and how the BOSS project has helped people turn their lives around.
It’s been a privilege for ARC to be part of the BOSS project and support its aims to reintegrate ex-offenders into their communities by giving them the skills, qualifications, job and volunteering opportunities and confidence they need to gain employment or set up enterprise.
The BOSS Project provides the opportunity for its clients to Overcome the barrier of a criminal record, Improve Skills & Confidence, receive Pre-employment Training, Explore Apprenticeships and achieve Industry Qualifications. For more info visit www.thewallich.com
