Business Award Winners

Friday 28th April saw the 11th annual Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 Business Awards.

The awards acknowledge and reward the achievement of local businesses for showing entrepreneurial and enterprising fortitude whilst recognising their contribution to the economic development of the Nottinghamshire area.

Richard Smith, Operations Director, said: “We’re delighted to have won the Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 award for Commitment to the Community in recognition of the excellent work we are doing engaging hard to reach young people across the East Midlands.

“Our vision is to create outstanding alternative provision and services that enable young people who have been marginalised by their exceptional and complex special needs to develop skills and capabilities, leading them to becoming independent and employable adults who can interact and contribute positively within their communities. Since forming in 2008, we have earned an excellent reputation for re-engaging children and young people whose additional needs and associated behaviours have been a barrier to engagement and learning in mainstream settings.

“This award is testament to that and could not have been achieved without the hard work and dedication of the team here at R.E.A.L, which reflects the tremendous impact we are having on local young people.”



RAPS Mansfield will became RIS Mansfield on 27th May. The new RIS website will be launching shortly.
