Barwick recently attended an awards gala hosted by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce to receive the award alongside Deputy Nursery Manager Lizzie Arden.Greater Manchester Talent Match is a Big Lottery funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18 to 24 who have been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work.
