Future Clean takes award


A social enterprise that supplies environmentally-friendly car valeting while offering work and training to disadvantaged people has won a top international award.

Future Clean won joint first in the REVES Excellence awards 2013 which took place in Brussels on Friday (June 7). The award is designed to showcase innovative partnership working.

Future Clean is run by Pluss, a social enterprise that supports thousands of people with disabilities and other disadvantages into employment every year.

It was launched in a Plymouth car park in 2010 with European Social Fund support and rapidly expanded. Since then the project has won a national award, been runner up in a second, and is expanding across Britain with the latest branch in Truro.

Plus development manager, Rod Burnett, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that this award recognises our partnership work: we simply couldn’t make Future Clean succeed without the amazing organisations that we work with around the country.”
