Portland Pathways Win Award for Community Contribution

The Portland Pathways team are delighted to announce that the Portland Pathways initiative has won the Community Contribution category in the 2018 Chad Business Awards.

Portland Pathways has been named a Chad Business Award winner in the category of Community Contribution honouring the successful launch and implementation of the Portland Pathways and Recovery College programmes in the Mansfield and Ashfield areas.

The annual awards evening took place at Portland College on Thursday 29 November where finalists from businesses in Mansfield and Ashfield gathered to collect awards from across fifteen categories.

Award Judges selected organisations for the Community Contributions category who could demonstrate they have contributed substantially to the community, through society-led projects, volunteering or fund-raising, and who have also shown commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by improving the lives of local people.

Portland Pathways is an innovative programme, delivered by Portland College to provide people and businesses, in Mansfield and Ashfield, free guidance and training to help improve employability and reduce the disability employment gap. Portland Pathways and Recovery College services can be accessed via the Portland Pathways team who are based at hubs located centrally in both Mansfield and Ashfield.
