This little local charity has the biggest heart. What an amazing job Maura and the team do to help local vulnerable young people. With 100% dedication the results they achieve are amazing for a small charity.
I have been aware of Backup North West for many years. I have worked with them delivering development sessions for young people and staff. I have witnessed first hand the difference they make to the lives of vulnerable young people. The team are dedicated and committed to the young people they work with. The leadership of this organisation is exceptional. It is because of the difference this organisation makes that we decided to give a regular donation knowing that our small contribution is used effectively for the benefit of the young people. The staff or this organisation live its values. This organisation changes lives. They truly deserve Business of the year!
I would like to nominate Backup, also known as BYPHS, as the BEST charity in Bolton. It provides a holistic service to young homeless people and gives them support, both materially and emotionally, to help them get to a place where they can look forward to a better and more successful future. I rate thus a five star service that makes Bolton a richer community.
This is a wonderful organisation with people in all levels being lovely to talk to and very welcoming to new volunteers/people. They work tirelessly and still smile. They do amazing work and should be recognised for this.
This is a brilliant business,they are so dedicated and committed and go the extra mile.They are so passionate about helping young people while they are going through a tough time,making sure that they get the best possible outcome for each individual.
Backup North West provided me with unparalleled support during my time of need, allowing me to complete my A-Levels and move on to University. It plays an essential role for many vulnerable young people and over the last few years, with the help of their amazing CEO Maura and a cohort of great staff, has expanded rapidly and efficiently. Because of this I would argue it is not only a great service for young people but it is also a successful and efficient business.
I would like to nominate Backup Northwest for business of the year award.
The money is used helping young adults have room and board in an environment that is home from home with care staff members whose focus is helping these youngsters find employment and helping them back on their feet.
It’s an amazing company as without Backup some of these young adults would have been abandoned and sleeping in the streets.
Not only does BACKUP Northwest provide a priceless and essential service in continuing to prevent homelessness and promote independent living to young people. It provides its service users and staff with: Respect, Empowerment, Development and Consistency.
It’s its also a little sad that it has to continue to expand to achieve its mission yet it has done so in a professional and strategic manner.
BACKUP’s operational model can only be admired as it put people first.
A charity that has grown beyond belief since Maura Jackson became the Chief Executive. Her 'hands on' approach with fund raising has raised the profile of this vital charity in Bolton to offer much needed support to young homeless people.
A fantastic charity helping young people who would be homeless without the help of Back up. I have met some of the teenagers helped by Back up and they are all in a much happier place than they were. I cannot praise all the people involved enough! Making a difference for people who really need it!
I firmly believe in this charity - not only do they offer a roof to young homeless or sofa surfing young adults but they give everything they need to survive as an adult. They offer the information and teach how to live, work, go to collage or university, manage bills - life skills
Nothing is more important than life skills - learning wrong/right - how to manage money - time - work - how to apply for jobs
This charity is a Bolton business doing the best they can to our community
Backup is a remarkable organisation that not only keeps youngsters off the streets but gives them hope as well as a home. A blend of powerful professionalism and genuine caring creates an excellent system of care.
What can I say except it covers all bases when sign posting vulnerable young adults to support, at each step staff are amazing at giving support. Back up prizes itself on the philosophy of treating each ad an individual and bring kind counts for nothing, very humbling
BackUp are a fantastic charity staffed by passionate dedicated people who really care about the young people they work with. Without them many more young people would be homeless or without the support they need.
