Morningside were proud sponsors of the Financial Inclusion category and would like to congratulate Vineyard Compassion, which meets the needs of anyone in poverty in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, including food poverty, debt, worklessness, loneliness or mental ill-health.
The CSJ Awards honour the best grassroots, poverty-fighting charities and social enterprises in Britain. Six winners received a £10,000 prize, which will go towards providing their often life saving and life changing community work.
Our category winner Vineyard Compassion has helped over 5,000 people a year through a variety of services including: housing for those at risk, emergency food, clothing and household essentials to those in crisis, as well as debt counselling and money management support.
The CSJ chose the charity as the category winner because they believe that recognition of what they are achieving will open the door to further opportunities and relationships, and they wish to expand both in the quantity and quality of their services.
