Voluntary Sector Oscar for FEAT
Twenty-five years after its foundation, Fife Employment Access Trust (FEAT) has won a Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) Award for its work supporting those with mental health problems to find employment.
The prize, presented on 05 March at a prestigious venue in Central London, included a £10,000 grant and promotion of the organisation's vital work before an audience of influential politicians, journalists and philanthropists. Duncan Mitchell, General Manager of FEAT, said: "Day in, day out we get to work with people experiencing severe disadvantages in life due to their mental health and help them to unlock their ability and talent to overcome their daily challenges in life. It is an honour to help them on their journeys. "Winning this award is an enormous boost to everyone associated with FEAT, particularly to the staff and volunteers who constantly go far beyond the call of duty to achieve life-changing outcomes for the people who inspire us every day. "This year we are celebrating our twenty-fifth anniversary and what a way to mark it. We hope this award will lead on to even bigger and better things for us and the amazing people we serve."
