Leonard Curtis North East team receives Shared Value Award for support of homelessness charity

Restructuring and Insolvency

We are delighted that Iain Nairn and Sarah Gray from Leonard Curtis Gateshead have won a Shared Value Award from local homelessness charity Oasis Community Housing at its flagship Black & Gold Ball fundraiser at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead on Friday 17 May.

The BBC’s Reverend Canon Kate Bottley, the charity’s Patron, Chair of Trustees Nick Salisbury, and Corporate Relationships Manager Hazel Ditchburn presented Leonard Curtis with the award. The Shared Value Awards are in recognition of businesses support for Oasis Community Housing over the past 12 months and celebrate the success of the corporate partnerships.

Commenting on receiving the Award, Iain said: “We are delighted to support Oasis Community Housing and hope that we can do more to help the great team to deliver more across the North East over coming years.

There are many similarities between LC and Oasis, particularly the way that we both meet people in challenging situations and tailor support and solutions. For both of us, our clients are at the heart of the service we provide and we hope to make a difference to them, whatever difficulties they may face.”

Oasis Community Housing supports people facing homelessness across North-East and South-East England. For the last 40 years, the charity has been working to address both immediate needs and the root causes of homelessness through its Basis crisis services; its Home 24/7 supported accommodations for men, women, and mothers with babies; its Aspire unemployment support and financial skills training; and Empower programme for women escaping domestic abuse.

Oasis Community Housing’s Chief Executive, David Smith, said:

“Our Shared Value Awards recognise those businesses that go above and beyond in support of our charity. Every year we deliver help, housing and, moreover, a place people feel they belong through our homelessness drop-ins, emergency accommodation and supported accommodation projects.

“We could not deliver what we do without the generous support of our valued corporate partners and the dedicated individuals within these businesses.”
