Charity of the Year
Home-Start Bracknell Forest
Home-Start Bracknell Forest is a local charity which supports families with young children. Despite lockdown restrictions, the charity continued its 25-year service to the Bracknell Forest community, providing invaluable support throughout the pandemic. Staff and volunteers persevered to maintain contact with families by phone, text, video calls and walks, all at a time when other organisations were closed to families.
The Ark Trust
The Ark Trust is a local charitable organisation which this year celebrates 35 years of service to the Bracknell Forest community. The Ark Trust offers a range of services to local people with disabilities, and other disadvantaged groups. Since the start of the pandemic the small team of Ark volunteers have run the community response and vaccine hub, benefitting countless Bracknell residents.
