Employer Award for Outreach Services at The Brink

Inspirational social initiative The Brink has received the esteemed “Employer Award” at the Access Employment and Merseyside Outreach Service awards ceremony for its on-going support of vulnerable members in the workplace.


The awards, hosted by North West Community Services, recognised and celebrated noteworthy figures in both the disabled and recovery community, with this award highlighting the inspirational work of the Parr Street-based social initiative The Brink.

One of The Brink’s pioneering events included a series of “mocktail” master classes, an innovative means of providing enhanced hospitality skills to disadvantaged people from across the region. These demonstrations were just one of the ways in which The Brink enables participants to gain relevant industry experience and increase their access to employment.

Assistant Manager at The Brink, Jennifer Lawrence said:

“We are delighted to have won this wonderful heartfelt award. It has been a pleasure working with vulnerable members in society, who against all of the odds put aside their disabilities and limitations to enter the workforce.”

“Our ethos at The Brink is to give back to society and provide equal job opportunities – therefore we strive to do as much as we can in helping vulnerable members of the local community.

“We hope to continue our efforts in providing on-going support and guidance to those wanting to join/re-enter the workplace, whilst diminishing the social stigmas that are attached.”
