The Torrington Youth Space Team

The Youth Genesis “Phil Heath” Award 2020

This year, we at Youth Genesis decided that the annual Phil Heath Award should go to one of our hardworking teams, instead of an individual person.

So, the Phil Heath Award for 2020 is presented to all of the staff and volunteers of the Torrington Youth Space Team.

Paula and the team of ten volunteers have given so much time to improve the lives and wellbeing of Torrington’s youth and have created a valuable safe place for the young people. The team have gelled well together and are always looking out for one another.

From opening in June 2019, the Torrington team have gone from strength to strength, working hard using the youth work curriculum, including mental wellbeing, finance and budgeting, healthy lifestyles, cooking skills, trips and fundraising. The team have taken the lead and have gone above and beyond to make our provision at Torrington a resounding success and enriching the lives of young people.

On behalf of the board of Directors at Youth Genesis, thank you so very much for all you’ve done and continue to do, well done!

Many congratulations to Torrington, keep up your amazing work!
