Double honour for Denbighshire award winning project

HomeNews

Denbighshire County Council is celebrating after their TRAC 11-24 project has been recognised with two awards.

TRAC 11-24 is a Denbighshire County Council led project that runs across the 6 counties in North Wales, with the regional team being based in Denbighshire.

The project was recognised at an awards ceremony on recently announced at the European Structural and Investment Funds Annual Information Event 2017 in the Liberty Stadium in Swansea.

The project supports young people aged 11-24 disengaging with education and at risk of becoming NEET (not in Education, Employment or Training). The aim of the project is to reduce the number of young people aged 11-24 at highest risk of becoming NEET in North Wales, through a range of interventions that will compliment but not duplicate mainstream services.

Denbighshire County Council works with local authorities Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Flintshire and Wrexham and Grwp Llandrillo Menai, Coleg Cambria and Careers Wales as joint beneficiaries and each has a delivery team which has a variety of supportive roles in each team: office staff, support mentors, counsellors, family liaison officers, engagement workers, youth workers.

The first award ‘ESF Projects: Best individual achievement (aged 11-24 years)’ was won by Elliw Griffiths, a project participant from the Gwynedd County, whose life has been transformed with the help and support of the project and the second ‘Outstanding Project Winners: ESF’ was won by the TRAC 11-24 Project, accepted by Regional Project Manager Sian Morgan (Denbighshire County Council).

The winners were announced by the Finance Secretary, Mark Drakeford, at an awards ceremony.
