Divisional Commendation

Divisional Commendation

Turning Tides’ Community Workers were commended for their tireless efforts throughout the pandemic at the West Sussex Divisional Awards ceremony held at Arundel Castle on Monday 18th October.

Nominations were made from Sussex Police employees to recognise those serving the community who go above and beyond the call of duty.

The prestigious accolade related to the police initiative Operation Manner, where Turning Tides worked with Sussex Police to protect people who were homeless, identifying safeguarding needs and reducing antisocial behaviour. Turning Tides staff played a critical role, providing support to homeless people during the pandemic and also securing longer term housing solutions.

Queen’s Award Win

Queen’s Award Win

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service was presented to our charity on Wednesday 1st September 2021 by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of West Sussex, Susan Pyper at the Littlehampton Community Hub.

The award is the highest of it’s kind given in the sector across the UK. The award is considered the MBE for volunteer groups, recognising the outstanding service volunteers have made to their local community.

Officially announced back in June 2020, the actual award presentation had been delayed to ensure everyone’s safety. Mrs Pyper, presenting the award on behalf of the Queen, spoke passionately to the volunteers in the audience:

“You are a group of very special people. Very few actually get awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, so it is a very prestigious award. You have set the bar very high… You are a group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things and in this case, I really, really mean it.”
