Last chance to enter homelessness awards
Entries for this year’s Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards must be in by noon tomorrow (10 May).
The awards are for organisations that work with homeless people that have been running for more than six months, including council departments, social landlords and charities.
The Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards are sponsored by the London Housing Foundation - a trust that supports homelessness charities and agencies - the 33 London councils and homelessness charity Shelter.
Sir Steve Bullock, executive member for housing of umbrella group London Councils, said: ‘These awards aim to recognise the innovative ideas and hard work of those who work with homeless people in London.
‘The Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards are the only accolade of their kind which showcase some of the very best practice by people working on the front line.’
The winner will be awarded £30,000; the runner up will receive £15,000; third place £10,000 and there will be a £10,000 prize for best use of volunteers.
An expert judging panel will choose the finalists who will be presented with their awards at a ceremony to be held in Speaker’s House in the House of Commons on 18 October.
