We are Rotherham Federation and we believe that Rotherham needs strong local communities. We support communities to grow and develop, working with them to build their sense of belonging, community pride and spirit. We work with and through grass root community groups that are committed to bringing communities together, giving all communities a voice and creating local solutions to local issues.
Rotherham Federation have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award a local voluntary group can receive in the UK and is equivalent to an MBE.
Phil Hayes CEO says “how delighted I am that our group’s work has been recognised, for what our volunteers have contributed to our communities. I want to pay tribute to hard work and commitment of our incredible team.”
The RotherFed Friendship Calls project was shortlisted for the “Excellence in Community Action Award” at the Annual Tpas Awards which took place on 8th October 2021, and we have been successful.
Our CEO, Phil Hayes, would like to say a big thank you to all our amazing volunteers that have given so much of their time up to help isolated people in our communities through some really difficult situations.
Also a huge thank you to all our staff team that have been involved in and created an incredible service through their passion, resilience and hard work.
