Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards 2009 promotion

The Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards 2009 are now open. Organisations tackling homelessness in London now have a chance of winning a share of £43,000, nearly double last year’s prize money.
Run by London Councils, the Awards are designed to recognise projects that improve services to homeless people, prevent homelessness, or tackle disadvantage caused by homelessness.
They are open to registered social landlords, borough housing and social service departments, NHS trusts and voluntary organisations across the capital.
The winner will receive £20,000, with £10,000 going to two runners-up and a further £1,000 going to the remaining three shortlisted projects.
This is the 11th year that the Awards have been run. They are funded by all 33 London authorities together with sponsorship from Communities and Local Government, the London Housing Foundation, and Shelter.
The Awards were established in 1998 in memory of Andy Ludlow, former director of Housing and Social Services in the London Borough of Haringey.
Last year’s winner was Streetwise Opera, a charity working to improve the lives of the capital’s homeless people through music.
The closing date for entries is 20 May 2009.
