Really friendly people running this charity. They put on a fab fund raising night without pressure to constantly donate to the charity. Great cause which is sadly getting worse, good job charities like this exist!
Backup is a 'life-saver' for many young people. Staff are committed to turning these young people's lives around. Backup is more than a homeless housing charity; provides emotional and wellbeing support, alongside practical elements in educating their residents about all aspects of homecare and managing personal finance in order to be able to live independently. The North-West, and in particular Bolton, is a far better place because of the backup service it provides young people in need.
An amazing charity that support young homeless people. It's not just about putting a roof over their head but about life skills, independent living skills, education and emotional support.
The work is invaluable and the staff are passionate about they do and work really hard to get the best possible outcomes
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.
