We’re always proud of the work we do at Homeless Link. We have a great network of members a range of amazing programmes, and we get a kick every day out of knowing that we are making a difference in the lives of vulnerable people all over the country.
Sometimes, though, it’s nice to get a pat on the back, and to get recognised for our work, especially by colleagues in the sector who really get what we do.
So, all modesty aside, we’re chuffed to bits to announce that we’ve been nominated for a Third Sector award!
The Seckies (as absolutely nobody calls them) offer a chance for voluntary organisations of all sizes, to celebrate their work and achievements. After the extraordinary year or so that everybody has had, it feels more important than ever for our organisations to recognise the hard work, of the third sector.
One of the things that we’re proudest of at Homeless Link is how we have developed In-Form from an idea to a vitally important Member service that makes a real difference to 240+. So it means a huge amount to us to be nominated for the Enterprise Award, and to see the talent, perseverance and dedication of our team being recognised at a national level.
But while we’re blowing our own trumpet, we don’t want to forget some of our partners who have also been recognised for the amazing work they do in the sector.
We want to give a big shout out to New Horizon, who have been nominated for Breakthrough of the Year. Their work with young homeless people in London is an inspiration to us and deserves every bit of recognition it gets.
Our partners Family Action have been nominated for one of the big ones: Charity of the Year. We’ve been inspired to see how this great organisation has responded to the pandemic, offering practical and financial help and, maybe most impressively, adapting and expanding their range of services to suit these difficult times.
Centrepoint Health and Wellbeing Team has been nominated for the Covid 19: Best Service Delivery Innovation. It’s a hugely impressive achievement for the organisation run by young people for young people, and we’re proud to call them partners.
Our work is teamwork, and our achievements depend on a wide range of dedicated professionals and volunteers, but we’re delighted to applaud the work of outstanding individuals too. Mandy Mahil has been nominated for a Rising Star award for her work with Working Chance, the UK’s only employment charity solely for women with criminal convictions. She’s used her own experiences and passion to develop and implement a raft of innovations at Working Chance and we’re thrilled to see her being recognised for her work.
The work we do is serious, and even though it’s rewarding it’s not always glamorous. But it is something to celebrate. We’re looking forward to the grand prize-giving ceremony in September, dusting down our dinner suits and picking out our frocks. And we’re thrilled and privileged, not only for our own nomination but to share the stage and share the evening with an entire industry dedicated to compassion, hard work.
