Last year three local groups, Autism Berkshire, Family Friends Windsor and Maidenhead and Interakt, each received one of the £1,000 prizes.
The results drive BCFs fundraising. Last year’s Vital Signs reported that a safe home, good health and secure employment are all linked and underpin wellbeing so BCF launched Vital for Berkshire – homes, Health and Work. This campaign has already funded over 20 local groups that provide vital support including counselling, assessable transport, crisis support, education or training, health coaching, supporting people back into back into employment and tackling homelessness.
