Learning Partnerships shortlisted for UK final of Lloyds Bank Foundation Charity Achievement Awards

Learning Partnerships has been selected from charities across Yorkshire and Humber as the regional winner of the Enterprising Collaboration Award. They received a prize of £1000 and will now compete against charities from across England and Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands for six overall prizes which will be announced at the UK Final awards ceremony on 8th October 2015.

The Charity Achievement Awards have been created to recognise the amazing, life changing work of small and medium sized charities. Learning Partnerships won the Enterprising Collaboration Award in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Learning Partnerships in Leeds were recognised by the judges for nurturing their 15 year partnership with local law firm, Addleshaw Goddard. The law firm has supplied 125 volunteers to the charity’s Let’s Read literacy programme, providing one to one support to children struggling at school via lunchtime reading sessions.  Not only does the scheme improve literacy outcomes for children, it also offers them a chance to meet adults from the world of work, helping to raise their aspirations for the future. 

Cath O’Grady Senior Executive at Learning Partnerships said of the award: “It is always rewarding to be recognised for the work that we do as a charity and this particularly highlights the excellent relationships we have built with our many partners across all sectors. We would like to thank both Addleshaw Goddard for their continued commitment to the work we do and Lloyds Bank Foundation for selecting us for the award.”

Chief Executive of the Foundation, Paul Streets OBE, said of the awards: ‘We are delighted to celebrate the winners of our Charity Achievement Awards. Learning Partnerships has demonstrated excellent and inspiring practice, and have set the standard high; not just surviving in these tough times, but thriving, delivering vital services and literally transforming lives. For over 30 years the Foundation has supported thousands of such small and medium sized charities to tackle disadvantage in communities right across Yorkshire and Humber and we look forward to doing much more in the years to come.’
