Embrace East Sussex are delighted to have been presented with the award for Equality and Inclusion Achievement at the Spark Awards 2016, on the 10th May. Embrace is a local charity for special needs and disabled children, promoting inclusion and improving life skills and opportunities through clubs, outreach and advocacy. This is a huge achievement for Embrace, especially given that they are still a very young charity.
The Spark Awards are sponsored by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and celebrate the work local community and voluntary groups do with children and young people. Founders of Embrace, Rebecca Whippy and Annette Ackland, as well as several other members of the Embrace team, were proud to collect the award on the night.
Becky said “We are so proud and excited to have received this award, especially considering how many amazing charities are here tonight.”
Embrace run a number of groups and support services for families in East Sussex, including respite groups, parent support and advocacy. They are also in the process of setting up a new schools partnership scheme. Embrace provide an extremely valuable resource to parents and carers.
