LEADING Birmingham-based social enterprise JERICHO has been awarded the coveted Work and Welfare award in the CSJ Digital Awards 2020 by the highly regarded Think Tank, the Centre for Social Justice. 

News of the JERICHO win was announced by Bear Grylls via the CSJ’s website and its social media platforms this week, during the first-ever digital awards week.

The CSJ Awards – in partnership with The Telegraph – is an annual, high profile award ceremony that honours the best grassroots, poverty-fighting charities and social enterprises across the United Kingdom. The Work and Welfare award is designed for organisations who help people to get back onto their feet and into work.

JERICHO CEO, Richard Beard said:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to win the Centre for Social Justice’s Work and Welfare award. Our burgeoning relationship with the CSJ will support our mission to ensure the issues that affect people with barriers to employment and social inclusion are heard and represented at the highest level. This will ultimately mean that we can make an even greater impact above and beyond the individual lives of the people JERICHO was established to support.”

Founded in 1993, JERICHO actively supports people who are marginalised by society and barriers to employment, to find work and the personal fulfilment they deserve. JERICHO believe in a just society where everyone has a chance to prosper and their model is straightforward and sustainable. They operate a number of not-for-profit social enterprises which offer great products and services, but with the added benefit that each time a customer chooses them, they are supporting life-changing job opportunities for people who need them most.

The more money people spend with JERICHO, the more they can do to improve the lives of vulnerable people. It’s that simple. JERICHO are not stopping until they realise their vision of a world free from injustice and a future where people from all backgrounds can reach their full potential in work and in life.
