Khulisa gets a mention in this article discussing why charities need to be open about their failures and successess, in order to improve our services and learn from one another.
"Young Star" Wins Award
In one of Khulisa’s proudest moments, we are thrilled to announce that one of our Young Stars, Voltaire, yesterday was awarded with a Youth Compassion Award by the Dalai Lama at a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.
We are honoured to be partnering with Catalyst in Communities in supporting the Young Stars and using our Silence the Violence/Face It programmes as a training and engagement element to their ongoing development. They are an inspiration to all the other young people we work with.
Congratulations to Voltaire and all the young peopel he represents!

Milestones Mentors Honoured
The Southampton Volunteer Certification scheme aims to recognise the important contribution that volunteers make to their local community. 4 mentors from Khulisa's Milestones mentoring programme were nominated to be recognised for their hard work and over 100 hours of service in their roles. Annie Norman, Marie Ferguson, Lyn Martin and Charlotte Luckman were all presented with their certificates on the 29th October by the Mayor of Southampton and the CEO of Volunteering England. It was a really enjoyable afternoon and it was fantastic to see some of our brilliant volunteers recognised for the important work they carry out.
