“Protecting the Vulnerable Award” from Northumbria Police
In July 2021, we were honoured & excited to receive the Protecting the Vulnerable Award at the first Northumbria Police Citizens in Policing Awards. It is a huge thank you from Northumbria Police to our volunteers who give their time and energy to serving the people of Newcastle’s night-time economy – caring, listening and helping. Working alongside door staff, medical staff & Northumbria Police ensuring all who are out enjoying themselves are looked after if they become vulnerable.
