Waveney teachers and organisers recognised at Suffolk awards ceremony

The Raising the Bar awards, which celebrate and recognise excellence across education in Suffolk, took place at Trinity Park, Ipswich on June 26.

Innovation of the Year went to Access Community Trust who, through their youth services based at Sams Café and The Enterprise Lounge, Bevan Street, Lowestoft, work with a range of young people offering constructive activities and interventions delivered by positive role models who offer a range of skills for both work and life.

This innovative and progressive trust works closely with schools, pupil referral units, colleges and other educational providers to offer disadvantaged young people a range of opportunities.

Emma Ratzer, Access Community Trust CEO, said: “This is an amazing achievement and one that really recognises the hard work and passion they demonstrate every day. We have gone from an idea on a bit of paper to a truly inspiring workplace.”
