Breaking news HCT Group wins Bus and the Community Award

Source By: HCT

HCT Group has won the top accolade in the Bus and the Community Award category at the UK Bus Awards for our Drive On project for ex-offenders.

The Bus in the Community Award recognises a scheme, project or other activity which has provided benefits to local people, placing the bus industry at the heart of the local community.

HCT Group’s Drive On project aims to create a path to sustainable employment for ex-offenders as London red bus drivers, helping to tackle re-offending.

The award was collected by John Smart, HCT Group’s Chief Financial Officer, at a glittering awards ceremony in London.

Dai Powell, HCT Group Chief Executive, said “We’re really proud of Drive On and the difference it’s making. We genuinely believe that the programme is scalable and could be undertaken by any bus operator.”

Mark Yexley, Chairman of the UK Bus Awards, said: “The judges praised this courageous scheme and commended the way the project brings together highly experienced organisations.”

HACKNEY ARTS CHARITY CELEBRATES 30-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH EXHIBITION

Source By: Studio Upstairs

This exhibition by artists from the therapeutic arts community Studio Upstairs celebrates 30 years of the diverse creativity and artistic skills of the Studio members, team and volunteers.

The charity Studio Upstairs was founded in 1988 to meet the needs of people moving out of the psychiatric health system, by providing a supportive community-based environment somewhat removed from the conventional clinical setting, where members can communicate their experiences through making art.  It is now celebrating its 30th year in London, has a branch in Bristol, and has recently opened in Croydon.

The exhibition will showcase work from members of the Studio Upstairs past and present and includes painting, print, sculpture and digital media.

Artist Statement: ‘As artists, we make art to explore our experiences of everyday life and use them as raw material in the creative process. In doing so we can make these experiences understandable or acceptable to ourselves and to the world outside.’

‘Studio Upstairs is a space to take some joy in colour, texture, and making art. For those of us who struggle to find a way to be with ourselves and others, this can the breathing space we need.’
