Ludlow Awards offer £26,000 to groups tackling London homelessness

Howard Lake | 12 May 2008 | News

Now in their tenth year, the Andy Ludlow Awards are offering organisations tackling homelessness and working with homeless people in London the chance to win a share of £26,000.
The awards are intended to recognise projects that improve services to homeless people, prevent homelessness, or tackle disadvantage caused by homelessness.
They are open to registered social landlords, housing and social service departments, NHS trusts and voluntary organisations across the capital. The winner will receive £10,000, with £5,000 going to three runners-up and a further £500 going to remaining shortlisted projects.
The awards are run by London Councils and funded by all 33 London authorities together with sponsorship from Communities and Local Government, the London Housing Foundation, and Shelter.
Last year’s winner was the St Giles Trust, a Southwark-based charity working to support ex-prisoners.
The closing date for entries is midday on 10 June 2008.
