2018 Is Our 70th Anniversary
In 2018 Reach Society celebrates the 70th year, the platinum anniversary, of the modern Black community (or MBC) in the UK, which began with the arrival of the 492 Windrush pioneers in 1948.
2017 Recognition Awards & QAVS Report
On Saturday, 21 October, more than 220 guests at Reach Society's 6th Recognition Awards celebrated the Society’s national honour, The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service or QAVS (which is also known as the MBE for volunteer groups) which was won last June. This was a historic achievement because Reach Society became the first social enterprise, led by a team of male professionals in the Black community, to win this national honour.

The product of 30 years of supporting the growth and development of thousands of individuals and organisations globally, the book brings together a proven formula for personal and business development. 
 
The vital and essential ingredient of SPIKE is that everyone has at least one inherent strength.
