Freedom of the City for Blackburne House

ONE of Liverpool's most inspirational centres for women will be granted the Freedom of the City at a special ceremony next week.  Celebrating over 30 years supporting women, on Monday, 8 June 2015, Blackburne House will be admitted to Liverpool City Council's Freedom Roll in recognition of the wide range educational opportunities offered to women, of all ages, cultures and backgrounds in Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Tony Concepcion said:- "I am delighted to be awarding Freedom of the City to Blackburne House. For over 30 years now they have helped, encouraged and trained women from across the City and beyond, but above all they have offered support, advice and friendship to make a difference in the lives of others.  They are a most worthy recipient of this award and I wish them many more years helping those who need it most."

Claire Dove OBE DL Chief Executive Officer, Blackburne House said:- "We are thrilled to accept this honour from our great City and dedicate it to all the Women of Liverpool and beyond who have inspired us over these 30 years.  When we 1st started out we believed this small project would be a minor intervention to assist women into the workplace. As we all know it became much more. This was largely thanks to the women who came onto our programmes and many for the 1st time in their lives, feeling successful and ambitious about their future.  We will continue to give our best to the women of our great City and beyond as there is still work to be done."

Founded in 1983, Blackburne House is now a successful and vibrant organisation that has grown from a centre of education for women to being one of the United Kingdom's leading and pioneering social enterprises. The work undertaken enables individuals, organisations and businesses to positively impact on the local economy.
