Forum Central is excited, and delighted, to announce that we were named as the Partner of the Year at Leeds City Council’s annual Adults and Health Excellence Awards.
The awards recognise the outstanding contributions of individuals, teams and organisations who work in the field of adult health and social care in the city, so we are hugely honoured to have won this award.
Forum Central fought off fierce competition from 5 other organisations in the Partner of the Year category, which was then narrowed down to a shortlist of three.
Leeds Involving People and Through The Maze were both highly commended as the two other shortlisted organisations and received well-deserved recognition for the amazing work they do to support vulnerable people across the city and ensure that their voices are heard.
We were nominated by Tony Cooke, who leads the city’s Health Partnerships Team, who praised Forum Central for the work they deliver to support the wider third sector in Leeds who provide services for people the greatest health inequalities.
Tony thanked us for our fundamental role in enabling the sector to contribute to the Leeds Plan and the development of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, and also the high quality support and challenge we provide at a strategic level.
Karen Pearse, Director of PSI-Volition, said:
“It is great to get this recognition for all the hard work, time and commitment we have put in to making sure that the ‘left shift’ is successful”
“We have a fantastic third sector in Leeds, and we are accepting this award on behalf of all our members, who work incredibly hard to support people who face the biggest health and social challenges”
