Celebration Event

On Thursday 26 June about 40 people came together to celebrate the achievements of Darnall
Forum over the past two years.

The Forum has been funded by Objective 1 and Yorkshire Forward since 2006 and has:
• involved 70 volunteers
• given advice and information to over 800 people
• helped more than 250 people to access training
• helped over 230 people towards finding a job
• and helped 25 community groups to develop.


The event was attended by members of the community, funders and organisations that the Forum has worked with over the past two years.

Sylvia Hamilton, chair of Darnall Forum said, “It’s been wonderful to watch the Forum develop into a place where all the community feel welcome. During our recent matrix assessment a number of people even said that they felt the forum was their family in a strange country.”

Neil Bishop from the Darnall Forum added “It is a privilege to work for Darnall Forum. The trustees have been really supportive and helpful and the staff are a fantastic bunch of people. Not only are they really good at what they do but they’ve been totally committed to their work.”
