TD1 Youth Hub has collected the Volunteer Friendly Award from Borders Volunteer Centre.
It requires demonstration that strong polices and procedures are in place to support and develop volunteers.
TD1 Youth Hub is based in Galashiels and last year worked with more than 250 young people through its different projects, one of which is the youth committee. This is a project which involves eight people developing ideas for projects for other young people, as well as learning new skills such as communication, working with others and decision-making.
The picture shows two members of the youth committee – Becca Sherratt, left, and Bronwen Jones – receiving the award from Borders Volunteer Centre’s Nigel Sargent.
