September was a special month for Clanrye Volunteers with a Recognition Event held in their honor to celebrate their dedication to Clanrye Group. We have been very fortunate to have so many volunteers who are committed to bringing out the best in our participants. They give up their free time to ensure that the individuals we work with have that one-to-one support they require.
Eamon Murphy from Volunteer Now attended the event to highlight the importance of volunteering across the community and he had great feedback on the calibre of volunteers at our organisation.
Clanrye Group picked up a Family Friendly Employer Award in the Social Enterprise Category in the recent Employers for Childcare Awards in the Galgorm Resort. Having been Highly Commended in 2017 it was a fantastic achievement to come out on top this year.
Feedback from Employers for Childcare -
Clanrye Group impressed the judging panel with an easy to read form that was well presented and clearly structured. They showed clear evidence of a developing portfolio of family friendly initiatives and demonstrated great communication of these initiatives. The judges were particularly impressed that 20% of the company’s employees have been with them for 10+ years. Overall this was described as a “strong submission”. The judges unanimously agreed that this organisation is a very worthy winner.

The Clanrye Group volunteers (pictured here) led by Tony McAteer exceeded all expectations within the tight budget to produce a pleasant garden admired by many passers-by. The subway is a busy route for pedestrians from the car park on North Street to shops on Hill Street.
