The last 18 months has been an amazing time in the Beyond the Horizon story, as we have transitioned from being a project within a large national Children’s Charity to celebrating our first successful year as an independent charity. Whilst we have faced some challenges in moving premises and being responsible for the viability of the charity, becoming an employer and all which that entails, these are outnumbered by many great highlights.
Our enthusiastic, dedicated and committed staff and volunteer team has grown in numbers a lot sooner than we had planned, which is great news for the young people and families of Birmingham. In these difficult economic times I am truly amazed at how generous individual people and the charitable trusts we have applied to have been in supporting Beyond The Horizon Charity. This has made it possible for us to create a financial reserve to support our sustainability and bring confidence that we will continue to move from strength to strength.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Beyond the Horizon staff, volunteers and trustees; each and every one of whom contribute to supporting the children and families who need our support. Thank you – I am truly proud to be a part of this organisation!
