Huge congratulations to all the Stephen Lloyd Award winners from last week’s final judging event. The calibre of entries were high and all finalists deserve a round of applause!
Parenting Mental Health – addresses the adolescent mental health crisis by supporting, skilling and empowering parents to transform their child’s mental health and their own. Through their training, emotional support interventions, and community of 20,000+ parents, they aim to take the isolation, shame, and stigma away from unsupported parents facing unenviable challenges.
Standing Tall – matches people experiencing homelessness into stable jobs in responsible businesses. Alongside this, they ensure these individuals have a safe home to come back to through their ‘Amici’ hosting accommodation service. Their results prove that it’s this unique combination that’s vital – a job and a home together that’s helping people to move away from the streets for good.
Say It With Your Chest – developed a training programme to reduce the rate of exclusions in schools, where young people are effectively supported to thrive and realise their potential and build a better future for themselves. The training gives staff the skills and tools to support students who display disruptive behaviour.
Street Storage – is the only UK charity providing free safe storage for people experiencing homelessness. Working in partnership with day centres, outreach teams, soup kitchens, local authorities, the prison service and national charities such as Crisis and St Mungos, in two storage units across London, they are seeing the situation worsen in the aftermath of COVID19.
Stay tuned for another amazing round in 2022!
