Connect have been nominated for a North East Business Award in the Tyneside and Northumberland sub-region

Following a stellar year of growth, including a range of new contracts across our Community Services division, increasing our headcount from 215 to over 350 and growth in our annual turnover.

Andrew Walton, Executive Chair of Connect, said;

“It is a great achievement to be recognised in the ‘Lets Grow’ category for the North East Business Awards. We have experienced rapid growth over the past 12 months and the company shows no signs of slowing down.  A big thank you goes out to all of the Connect colleagues for creating this success which has enabled us to be recognised in this way.”

The awards, organised by local newspaper The Journal and their sister paper on Teesside, The Gazette, are held in association with the North East England Chamber of Commerce on March 2nd at The Marriot Hotel in Gosforth. If we win in this category we will go forward to the regional final in April, which will be held at Hardwick Hall Hotel in Sedgefield.
