Pivot takes the prize.
BUSINESSES providing children's and education services have been recognised for their "great entrepreneurial spirit".
Pivot Care and Pivot Educational Consultancy, established in 2013, have won the monthly business award run by Hudders-field law firm Eaton Smith.
Pivot Care aims to provide a secure environment for young people to flourish with a view to them returning to their homes or adoption. Alongside this, Pivot Educational Consultancy provides educational support to the children's home by supporting the young people from an academic, behavioural and psychological aspect and also supporting the schools they attend. They also work with numerous other schools across the Yorkshire area on assessment, behaviour, teaching and learning and inclusion and also as an approved national consultant for the Department for Education.
Alison Palmer, partner at Eaton Smith and a member of the judging panel, said: "Pivot stood out as having great entrepreneurial spirit while also having a considerable sense of social responsibility. They have created a company which bridges the gap between the education and social care sector in order to meet the needs of young people."
Andrew Kitterick, director of education at Lockwood-based Pivot, said; "We are delighted to win the Business of the Month Award."
