Six projects make it to shortlist for prestigious 2019 awards.
Six projects from across London have been shortlisted for the London Homelessness Awards and are in the running to win the first prize of £30000.
The London Homelessness Awards are sponsored by the London Housing Foundation, London Housing Directors, Mayor of London, Crisis and Shelter. Organisers received 30 applications for the awards and a judging panel had to choose just six. The projects will now be visited by a member of the panel and the final winner and runners up who will share a prize fund of £60000 will be announced at a special event on October 17th.
Simon Dow is the Chair of the judging panel for the London Homelessness Awards. He said: “Yet again we saw examples of really high-quality innovative work being carried out by a wide variety of organisations in London, helping people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. It was as ever very tricky to agree a final six but these projects show real imagination, sustainability and commitment to help reduce homelessness in London.”
The six shortlisted projects (in alphabetical order) are:
- Haringey Rough Sleeping Task Force
- King’s Health Partners Pathway Homelessness Team at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
- The Magpie Project
- The North London Early Homelessness Prevention Service
- The Passage Anti-Slavery Project
