St Helens Gateway nominated for national award

The Millennium Centre is thrilled to announce that the St Helens Gateway service has recently been shortlisted for a national Third Sector Excellence Award.

St Helens Gateway, an information service for local health and social care provision, was launched in March 2012 with the support of local charitable and statutory organisations. The service has since grown in stature with hundreds of people accessing the facility every week online, by email, over the phone and face-to-face within the Millennium Centre reception.

Now in their eighth year, the Third Sector Excellence Awards recognises and celebrates the outstanding work and innovation that takes place in charities and not-for-profit organisations. St Helens Gateway has been nominated within the ‘best new or relaunched website’ category, recognising the website’s innovative design, creative use of social media and quantity of easily accessible information.

Although managed by the Millennium Centre, St Helens Gateway is thankful to Cultivate Creative (who designed, structured and branded the website) and to over a hundred local charitable and statutory organisations that have helped compile the directory of written and visual/audio information.

Tony Richards MBE, Executive Chairman of the Millennium Centre, was overjoyed with the nomination, “We are so pleased that we have been recognised as providing a vital service to the local community. In our category alone we are up against some huge national charities, but we are proud to be representing the town of St Helens at such a prestigious event.” Danny Woodworth added, “Although it is the Millennium Centre that has been nominated for the award, we want to dedicate this nomination to all the other charitable organisations in St Helens that work so hard to benefit the local community – we couldn’t have developed St Helens Gateway without their continued support.”

The award winner of the Third Sector Excellence Awards will be announced at a dinner in London on the 27th September 2012. For further information about the Third Sector Excellence Awards please click here.

The Millennium Centre (St Helens) Ltd is a registered charity (no.1089878) based in the heart of St Helens, supporting the local community, the third sector and statutory organisations.

New website launch

Welcome to the new-look Millennium Centre website, including our new corporate logo. Thanks to help from local design agency Cultivate Creative, we have redesigned our website to be clearer, more aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate.

Our new logo uses the three arches – this represents the three storeys of the Millennium Centre building, plus it also indicates that we act as an umbrella charity, with smaller charities and voluntary groups using our facilities and with us all working towards the same goal of supporting the local community.

We have also chosen the strap-line ‘the heart & soul of St Helens’ due to the location of the Millennium Centre, being adjacent to the town’s bus and train stations for easy access, and also due to the high proportion of St Helens residents who use the building for a variety of different purposes. To find out more about what facilities are available at the Millennium Centre have a look at the ‘facilities’ link towards the top of the page.

We would love to hear what you think about our new website and there are various ways to get in touch with us – please contact us via the form on the right, follow us on twitter or check out our facebook page.
