We are delighted to be teaming up with Global’s Make Some Noise who support small but brilliant charities across the UK, which help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.  This year they are working with two fantastic causes right here in the North East:

If U Care Share
If U Care Share focus on suicide prevention, intervention and support for those affected by suicide. The North East has one of the highest suicide rates in the country. If U Care Share provides workshops for young people, focusing on emotional and mental wellbeing; delivers training so that people can intervene should someone they know be feeling suicidal; and provides practical and emotional support for those affected by suicide.

Moving On
Moving On provides support, advice and practical help to break the cycle of youth homelessness in County Durham. They support young people aged 16-25 who are at risk of becoming homeless, providing services including housing advice and guidance, access to accommodation in the public, private and social sectors, and assistance in developing the knowledge, skills and motivation to live independently in the community.

On the evening we’ll be running a charity prize draw with some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Just wanted to say very many thanks to you and the team for another excellent evening last Thursday. Steve Cram was an excellent choice to host the event. The whole evening had that feeling of quality – very difficult to define but very evident. A wonderful way of marking the 10th anniversary of NEAA.

Very many thanks for an excellent evening last Thursday. Feedback from my table guests has been very positive – another success for Echo. Looking forward to next year already!
