Biz4Biz provides a coherent voice for businesses in Hertfordshire. It aims to influence and shape policymaking whilst encouraging investment in the region by engaging with local and central government, relevant public-sector bodies and local organisations.
Based in Stevenage, Families Feeling Safe offer programmes based on Protective Behaviours which enable parents and carers to take charge of their lives by helping them to recognise their feelings and thoughts and to choose behaviours for which they take responsibility. The social enterprise believes:
“We all have the right to feel safe all of the time”
“We can talk with someone about anything even if it is awful or small”
Protective Behaviours training is being completed by a range of different people, in different professions and in different workplaces, and is used by schools, mental health teams, children’s centres, domestic abuse services, police, youth workers, social services.
Last week, founders of the organisation, Dave Austin and Fiona Benjamin showcased their successes in front of a panel of judges. The face-to-face presentation allowed them to highlight key challenges and accomplishments that have shaped their business and put forward why they believe Families Feeling Safe deserve the Best Corporate and Social Responsibility award.
Dave said “We are delighted to have even been nominated for this award and our hard-work to have been recognised. Both Fiona and I as well as the rest of team believe passionately in Protective Behaviours and the benefits that come with the training we provide to make sure children and young people feel comfortable and safe in their surroundings”.
They now face a nail-biting wait to see if they are shortlisted before the winners of all categories will be announced at the biz4Biz awards ceremony on Friday, 2nd March.
