Queen's Award for Volunteering
On June 2nd 2009 it was announced that Mothertongue had been awarded the Queen's Award for Volunteering. The prestigious National Honour, which is equivalent to the MBE, sets the national benchmark for excellence in volunteering, and the activities of those awarded are judged to be of the highest standard.
Mothertongue was selected form 406 voluntary organisations across the UK. A certificate signed by the Queen and a commerative crystal will be presented by Her Majesty's representative in Berkshire, Mary Bayliss at a special ceremony arranged by the Lieutenancy office.
Speaking of Mothertongue's success, Beverley said: "We are all thrilled to have received this prestigious award. It is a wonderful recognition of what our clients tell us: that they feel understood from the heart at Mothertongue and that from the opportunities to contribute that we provide, they have a greater sense of belonging and of being valued by the wider community."
