We are proud to announce that we have received a Bronze Quality Mark award from London Youth!
London Youth are committed to high quality youth work, and have delivered support for young people across London for over 130 years. They have a network of over 400 community organisations who create opportunities for tens of thousands of young people every year. London Youth support these organisations to help them achieve the highest possible standard. The Bronze Quality Mark award focuses on the policies and procedures that organisations have in place to ensure they operate legally and in a safe environment. Mark Roberts, Regenerate’s youth work co-ordinator, recognised the honour of the Quality Mark award and felt it was important that Regenerate look at their own policies and procedures to ensure they were operating at the highest standard. He and the team at Regenerate have worked hard over the last two years, improving and applying new policies and procedures, before Mark put forward an application for the Bronze Quality Mark award. Receiving this award provides Regenerate with a badge of excellence, which is recognised by local authorities and funders. This scheme that London Youth have in place is accredited by City and Guilds and, uniquely, involves the young people in the assessment.
This is a huge milestone for Regenerate and we are absolutely thrilled to have received this award. We look forward to continuing to deliver effective support to our young people, and are now working towards our application for the London Youth Silver Quality Mark award which focuses on the opportunities provided to young people, as well as the training and support provided to the organisation’s staff and its volunteers.
A huge thank you to London Youth and all of the Regenerate staff members who enabled us to receive this award, and most importantly the young people that we have journeyed with over the last 18 years!
