On 2nd February 2018, members of the HeadStart team attended the Joshua Ribera Achievement Awards in Birmingham.
The Awards celebrated the achievements of young people in alternative provision, including a number of young people from Wolverhampton. This fantastic event was organised by Alison Cope (@ali_cope on Twitter), whose son, Joshua, aka Depzman, was murdered in a knife attack in 2013.
Young people in alternative provision often have great challenges to overcome, and yet can still achieve amazing things. HeadStart was delighted to be able to support the awards, and congratulates Alison on ensuring that the inspirational progress and achievements of young people who are all too frequently overlooked was celebrated in such a fitting, glamorous manner!
