BETTER centres in Lambeth have been awarded the Lambeth Made ‘Business Charter Mark Award for Community Impact’ for providing work experience opportunities for young people throughout Lambeth and for the positive impact on the health of the local communities we work with.
GLL were honoured to have been invited and selected to receive the prestigious award alongside seven other organisations which included Brixton BID, Make Shift, Vauxhall One, Veolia, Market Row and Brixton Village. The awards event was held at Lambeth College on Tuesday 3rd March and hosted by Shaff Prabatani, Lambeth Made Community Engagement Manager and Leader of the Council Cllr Jack Hopkins. GLL Lambeth Partnership Manager and the Community Sports Manager were in attendance to receive the award on behalf of the Lambeth Partnership.
