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

This Catalyst Conference and Awards provide the perfect opportunity for our sector to come together to network and meet other VCSE’s, and to celebrate the success of the sector in the Borough for the outstanding work they have carried out in the previous year.

Catalyst Awards

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

Catalyst Conference

The Annual Catalyst Conference is the chance for Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations in Stockton-on-Tees to come together.

At the conference VCSE organisations have the opportunity to discuss issues, to network, and to learn more about what is happening in our Borough. Each year the Conference is themed around a topic relevant to the VCSE that year.

The conference gives attendees the chance to listen to speakers, attend workshops, network and visit stalls from charities and organisations from within our Borough.

The Catalyst Conference: The VCSE sector in Stockton-on-Tees in 2022 and beyond during the morning of our full-day event on Friday 12th November 2021, starting at 9:30am, this will be dependent on Government restrictions at that time.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day, including a buffet lunch at 1:00pm. This will be great opportunity to network with people after so many months when we weren’t able to! There will also be stalls to visit to find out more about what’s happening in the sector in Stockton.
