PA Housing's Eden Park, which provides housing and support to vulnerable teenage parents, has won a prestigious award for its outstanding contribution to the Northamptonshire community.
The Corby-based scheme scooped the Edge Award at the 2019 Northamptonshire Community Foundation Annual Awards, held at Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton, on Wednesday 6 November.
The Northampton Foundation, the independent grant-making charity that organises the awards, revealed the judges had been "unanimous in their decision for the winner" of the Edge category.
The judges stated that:
“Eden Park provides a very much need service and much needed support to young parents, to identify abusive relationships and to understand what should be ‘normal’". It provides life skills, offering a vision and freedom for individuals. By working with a small number of clients, this group has much greater effect."
With 13 self-contained flats, Eden Park has made a huge difference to the lives of the parents and children it has housed and supported since it opened in 2005.
Many of the young families are referred to the scheme via social services when their lives have reached crisis-point, and the team at Eden Park have an excellent track record of spending up to two years supporting them to be ready to move into their own homes.

On behalf of everyone at PA Housing, we'd like to thank Eden Park for their tireless dedication to the scheme and its customers. The award is a true testament to your hard work and we hope you're incredibly proud of yourselves.
