Major award for Fair Ways, the charity for Portsmouth’s most vulnerable children

Fair Ways
Portsmouth-based children’s services charity Fair Ways has been awarded the Best Employee Development Programme (In-House) Award at the 2024 UK Company Culture Awards.

It is the second year in a row that Fair Ways’ RiiSE programme has been shortlisted in the category.

Having been ‘highly commended’ in 2023, this year the charity emerged the winner.

Fair Ways deals with the most distressed and vulnerable children, providing stable placements and world-class care and support. The charity is creative and innovative in constantly seeking to improve the outcomes for the individuals we support.

The charity says it is delighted that its RiiSE training programme has become recognised as the benchmark for the development of knowledge and skills to understand the effects of exposure to various forms of childhood adversity, abuse, neglect, violence and other problematic behaviour.

It adds that its people are the standard bearers for care, compassion, strong values and therapeutic principles, and RiiSE is the golden thread that is woven through the organisation that continues to deepen and unfold over time.

According to the judges: “Fair Ways’ outstanding programme has significant potential for industry-wide impact, with its systematic approach to reducing restraints and improving mental health outcomes for children in care.

“The team’s commitment to investing in a trauma-informed care model demonstrates their dedication to improving practises and setting a new standard within the sector.”

As a multi-service provider, Fair Ways specialises in providing residential, education, fostering, community outreach and family services in the south of England.
