Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards 2010
1 June 2010
Do you work in an organisation in London that tries to improve the lives of homeless people? If so, you could be in line for an Andy Ludlow Homelessness Award!
Now in their twelfth year, the awards are open to the voluntary sector, housing and social services departments, NHS trusts, registered social landlords, or a partnership of agencies.
Prize money of £51,000 is up for grabs. The winner will receive £25,000, two-runners-up will get £10,000 and £2,000 goes to three other shortlisted projects.
The awards are run by London Councils and sponsored by the 33 London borough councils, London Housing Foundation, Communities and Local Government, Shelter, and London Councils' Grants Committee.
The judges are looking for work that takes an innovative or unique approach to tackling homelessness.
Broadway Howard Sinclair, chief executive (winner of the awards in 2009), said:
‘It was a great honour for Broadway and Barka to win the Andy Ludlow awards and was the highlight of two and half years work with vulnerable migrants from the A10 accession countries.
‘Winning this prestigious award has enabled us and other agencies to work together far more effectively to help homeless people who have no right of access to public funds. The other benefit has been to help others expand our model of working to other parts of the UK and Europe’.
