READ THE NOMINEE PROFILES IN THE AWARDS PROGRAMME We created the Forest Volunteer Awards to recognise and celebrate the amazing efforts of local volunteers in the Forest of Dean and earlier this Summer, we asked you to nominate those volunteer heroes who have demonstrated exceptional and outstanding support to the local community over the past 12 months. We had an amazing response and received hundreds of nominations. Our expert community panel had the tough task of shortlisting the nominations and picking the winners. However,one category - Volunteer of the Year – Peoples’ Champion – was decided by a public vote withalmost 1,400 votes cast. The winners were crowned at a special evening, held at the stunning conference space at the impressive AccXel Training Centre, which was provided for free to FVAF by local construction company the KW Bell Group, who were the main sponsors of the event. Jando Greco, volunteer at St Stephens Church in Cinderford was crowned Volunteer of the Year – the People’s Champion following a public vote. A volunteer of over 12 years his nominator said: “We so appreciate him, he is such a thoughtful, caring person and will do anything for anyone – Jando is so worthy of receiving this award.” Young volunteers were celebrated with Ebony Powell, volunteer and fundraiser at Forest of Dean Dog Rescue crowned under 16 years old Young Volunteer of the Year for her caring and dedicated commitment caring for the rescue dogs, whilst in the 17 – 25 years old category, Daisy Hoole rewarded for her tireless hard work volunteering at C.A.N.D.I Youth Space. In the groups section, The George in Newnham was recognised as the New Voluntary Group of the Year for reopening the former café as a vibrant community space. Next up, was Sedbury Space who picked up the Grassroots Voluntary Group award in recognition of the fantastic efforts of the community to create a thriving, inclusive, welcoming hub. Fire safety education organisation SkillZONE was awarded the Community Organisation award for their responsive work with young people in the Forest, and a team of volunteers from EDF Energy picked up the Business in the Community Award for helping out at Camphill Village Trust in Lydney. Forest of Dean Dementia Action Alliance (FDDAA) sponsored the launch of a new Inclusion Award, with Cinderford Bowls Club scooping the top spot for making changes to the game and their grounds to make bowls accessible for everyone to enjoy. Our Volunteering Manager Deb Cook said “So much of what happens within our community is because of people who give their time and energy for free. We think that recognising the amazing efforts of volunteers and organisations is incredibly important which is why we have been so pleased by the reaction of the local people who have supported these awards by nominating and voting.” Deb added, “It has been an incredible evening and we are so lucky and proud of the strength of the amazing voluntary sector we have in the Forest.” Master of Ceremony for the Forest Volunteer Awards was Steve Knibbs, BBC Points West reporter who kept the guests entertained with his expert hosting skills.

  • Gloucestershire Inclusive Employer Award | Mysite

    IT’S OFFICIAL! We’re an inclusive employer We are super delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Gloucestershire Inclusive Employer Award! At a special event held at Stroud Brewery on Monday 17 October, we were presented with an award in recognition of our commitment to inclusive recruitment and the support we gave to three young people, with hidden disabilities, on the Kickstart Scheme. Two of the young people now work at FVAF and the third has successfully gained employment elsewhere. Team members told us they are more confident to talk about their own needs as well as support others; and it has given us greater confidence to encourage others to seek the benefits of diversity and inclusion in their own organisations. Cathy Griffiths, FVAF’S GEM Project Navigator, who accepted the award said: “Creating inclusive work practices is a long-term journey. So we are delighted to have got this award and our commitment to inclusivity will be shaping key actions now and for the year ahead.” The Gloucestershire Inclusive Employer awards, hosted by Inclusivity Works , were launched by the GEM Project. The scheme recognises employers who are committed to building an inclusive culture where diverse groups of people can come to work, feeling valued and confident to be themselves.

  • Emma Bostico | Mysite

    Pag-aaral ng Kaso: Emma Bostico Si Emma ay gumagamit ng aming Walking with Wheels Tramper. Una siyang nakatagpo ng Walking with Wheels sa Wye Valley River Festival - “Na-book ako na kumanta kasama ang aking koro, ngunit ang pag-access sa lugar ng pagtatanghal ay nasa isang napakaputik na landas. Lumapit ang isang magandang lalaki, at inalok akong gamitin ang Tramper para makalusot sa putik. Ako ay lubhang nag-aalinlangan na ito ay pamahalaan ito, ngunit ang Tramper ay ginawa itong tila madali. Na-in love ako kaagad, at ayokong ibalik iyon.” Na-access na ni Emma ang isa sa aming mga landas sa ngayon, na may mga planong subukan ang aming iba pang mga ruta at ang mga mas malayo pa, na inaalok bilang bahagi ng Mobility sa kanayunan network. Si Emma ay isang masigasig na tagapagtaguyod para sa Tramper, na naaalala ang kanyang unang paglalakbay na sinabi niya na "Sa unang pagkakataon sa loob ng mahigit 7 taon, ang Tramper ay nagbigay-daan sa akin na "maglakad" nang malalim sa kakahuyan, na binabasa ang mga masaya at nakapagpapalusog na tanawin, amoy at tunog ng ang maluwalhating Forest of Dean. Nagbigay ito sa akin ng pakiramdam ng kalayaan, kalayaan at kalmado sa loob. Ilang oras kaming nasa gubat. Ayokong umuwi. Mahirap ilagay sa mga salita kung gaano ako nakinabang dito. Gusto kong planuhin ang susunod kong biyahe sa lalong madaling panahon." Nang tanungin tungkol sa epekto ng proyekto, sinabi niya "Bilang may kapansanan at malalang sakit, natakot ako na baka hindi ko na ma-enjoy ang pagiging kabilang sa mga puno. Ang Tramper ay naging isang game changer. Ito ay nagbigay-daan sa akin upang ibahagi ang mga araw ng pamilya, na hindi ko naranasan. Dahil maaari kong gamitin ang Tramper nang ganap nang nakapag-iisa, nangangahulugan ito na ang aking pamilya ay makakapag-relax at makakapag-enjoy din sa kanilang sarili." Nang tanungin kung ano ang sasabihin niya sa isang taong nag-iisip na subukan ang Tramper, masigasig si Emma: “Gawin mo! Napakapalaya na maging malayang gumagalaw sa kagubatan. Madaling ipagpaliban ang pagsubok ng mga bagong bagay kapag hindi ka mobile, dahil sa takot na mabigo, o masaktan o mapahiya ang iyong sarili, ngunit ang Tramper ay napaka-stable at ligtas. Ipapakita sa iyo kung paano gamitin ito, at magkakaroon ng emergency contact number kung sakaling magkaroon ka ng anumang problema (na hindi ko kailanman nararanasan). Ang Tramper ay walang katulad. Kailangan mong subukan para maniwala ka!" Magboluntaryo sa Foresters' Forest Bisitahin ang Foresters' Forest Website Mag-sign up para sa newsletter ng Foresters' Forest
