Young People and staff from Rathbone & The Old Library youth service went along to White Stuff HQ to say a huge thank you – literally!
We have been in the fantastic position of being the selected charity for White Stuff HQ for the last 3 years through the wonderful White Stuff Foundation (see more about their amazing work here .
As well as supporting us with very significant grants, we have benefitted from their expertise, technical support, training, lots and lots of hard labour from their teams and sheer all round fabulousness!
The support from the White Stuff Foundation has enabled us to extend our services, reach more Young People, develop our dance programme, refurbish our premises, buy educational equipment, rebuild our recording studio, get staff trained and qualified, pay for a fundraiser and buy a shiny brand new much needed mini-bus.
We are sad to be saying goodbye, but it’s been a brilliant experience and the support from White Stuff has left us in a much better place. Our huge thank you extends to everyone at White Stuff HQ and White Stuff Foundation – thanks guys, it’s been AMAZING!

On 22nd March the Care Quality Commission (CQC) published our Outreach Service’s inspection report following our inspection in January.
Jamie Sawyer, the Service’s Registered Manager, was very pleased with the outcome and feels that it reflects and acknowledges all the effort put in and skill applied by the team. Our aim is to provide a good value, high quality service to local people and this report shows that we are currently meeting that target, despite formidable pressures upon charity sector social care providers. Well done everyone!
