South Tyneside charity KEY Project is delighted to announce that it has been awarded We invest in people, standard accreditation from Investors in People.
It means principles and practices around supporting people are in place and everyone understands how to use them to make work better!
KEY is a local charity, rooted in its local community, working to prevent youth homelessness and support people in hardship throughout South Tyneside.
The charity’s trustees, staff and volunteers are all local people deeply committed to changing lives for the better in their community who genuinely care about the young people and families they support – being local at every level is what sets the charity apart from other organisations.

Commenting on the award, Jo Benham Brown, Business Development and Communities Manager at KEY Project, said: “Our people are our most valuable commodity. We have a highly qualified, skilled, knowledgeable and experienced team renowned for delivering a first-class service and always ‘going the extra mile’, amply demonstrated during this last year in lockdown.”

The award has provided a huge sense of achievement to all our staff and we confidently move forward on our journey of continuous improvement striving to be the best in our sector.”
