The Catalyst Achievement Awards is a highlight of the year for those involved in the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in Stockton-on-Tees, celebrating the success of the VCSE sector in the Borough throughout the year.

Each year we receive hundreds of worthy nominations which reflect the high calibre of the work going on in our Borough by the VCSE. The event itself raises the profile of Catalyst in the region and our nominees often go on to be recognised regionally and nationally.

The previous Catalyst Achievement Awards were held at Wynyard Hall in the Grand Marquee, over 270 people came together to celebrate the sector. The highlight of the evening was The Moses Project, the Outstanding Achievement winner. They were recognised for their work giving effective and meaningful support to men struggling with addiction and homelessness.

The Catalyst Achievement Awards will be taking place on Friday 12th November 2021, 2:00pm, this will be dependent on Government restrictions at that time.

The categories will reflect the work that has been undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic and are as follows:

  • Innovation as a Result of COVID-19
  • Outstanding Achievement in the Business Sector
  • Outstanding Achievement in the Public Sector
  • Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Outstanding for a VCSE Organisation

Deadline for Applications: Monday 16th August, 9:00am
