Our Past Events

Happy 5th Birthday Building Self-Belief CIO

As a celebration of our 5th Birthday, Building Self-Belief invited our young people, staff, trustees, funders and supporters to the Derwent Manor on the 7th September 2023. What a fabulous day we had. In 2018, we were delighted to have Lord Lieutenant Sue Snowden to launch the charity, our plan was to have her with us for our 5th birthday. Unfortunately, she has been unwell recently, and her Deputy Lieutenant Richard Swart attended in her place. He made a great deal of effort in both his research of the charity, his heartfelt speech, plus how much time and offer he took to interact with the attendees at the event.
