Atlantic Racquet Centre Community Partner of the Year
The Northam Care Trust were extremely proud to have been presented with the Atlantic Racquet Centre Community Partner of the year award by Atlantic Racquet Centre.
We have a meaningful partnership with ARC and are very grateful for all that they do in helping us improve the lives of the people we support. The people we support are always welcomed and valued at ARC with racquet sports sessions, gym sessions and a social space for our older age social group. Inclusivity underpins both our organisations – and this partnership working has helped both ARC and TNCT achieve great outcomes for people.
The Northam Care Trust is also a corporate board member of ARC and provide monthly updates on how those being supported to use the facilities are getting on and the outcomes for those people, which is always positive. Long may this fantastic partnership continue.
