Charlie Springer, one of the young people we have been working with, has been nominated for an award – and we’re super proud of him.

Our Charlie is currently serving an apprenticeship with Deaf Umbrella, a company which provides services and support to people with hearing impairments. He has reached the finals of the Federation of Small Business’ London Business Awards in the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category. The awards night takes place on 30 July and Charlie’s up against two other young people; we’re keeping our fingers crossed for him.

Charlie has written a great blog post about working with Deaf Umbrella, which you can read here.
