Cambridge Centre’s work is rewarded

SCARBOROUGH’S Cambridge Centre has become one of just a select number of organisations across the country to achieve the prestigious Silver status in a national programme.

The centre has been given the silver award in the Investors in People programme, which recognises outstanding training within businesses and organisations.

From the thousands that gain Investors in People, only a few hundred ever gain the coveted Silver status.

Cambridge Centre chief executive Nikki Orrell said: “Gaining the Silver status is a tremendous feather in our cap and recognises the value that we place in our workforce. Staff here feel involved and valued within the organisation and involved in its decision-making, which has a positive impact on the success of the Cambridge Centre and the work that it does helping the communities that we serve.”

She said the achievement of Silver Investors in People sent a clear message to everyone involved with the Cambridge Centre that it was striving for the highest quality service and that those services were in safe hands.

Based in Alma Square, The Cambridge Centre has a team of around 50 full-time and volunteer staff working across Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale to help people to move their lifestyles away from drug and alcohol use.
