TTC Receives West Midlands Police Commendation

Home > News > TTC Receives West Midlands Police Commendation

TTC has been awarded a commendation by West Midlands Police for our responsiveness and dedication to delivering Social Value throughout the West Midlands region during the pandemic.

The Chief Constable’s Award was given in appreciation for the generosity that TTC has shown through fundraising and charitable donations, volunteering and other initiatives that have helped benefit the local communities throughout the West Midlands.

Sharon Haynes, Client Services Director for TTC Group said: “Myself, my team and colleagues across TTC are incredibly proud to receive this prestigious commendation from Chief Constable Sir David Thompson. We have worked closely with our colleagues within West Midlands Police for over ten years now and are dedicated to our partnership working and support of the community within which we serve. This has been an incredibly challenging year for so many and we are honoured to have played our part in helping those that need our support most.”

Initially appointed in 2010 as the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS) provider for West Midlands Police, the past 12 months has been like no other, seeing TTC transition from courses such as the National Speed Awareness Course to being delivered online as Digital Classrooms. This has enabled those caught committing driving offences to have access to behaviour change courses during the Covid-19 pandemic, where social distancing measures prevented classroom courses from taking place.

One consequence of moving to online course delivery is that training venues, which are mostly sourced from within the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector, have seen a significant reduction in regular income. Sharon Haynes (pictured) said: “Through the loss of regular revenue of a number of local charities through the Covid-19 pandemic, who TTC would otherwise be able to continue utilising for our NDORS course delivery, my concern was that these charities would struggle to continue reaching the most vulnerable people and offer support within their own communities.

“Whilst organisations such as TTC were fortunately able to adapt and continue to operate during the pandemic and national lockdowns, I feel it is our responsibility to help support local charities in any way possible, to help ensure that vulnerable and less advantaged people continue to receive support.”
