StreetDoctors shortlisted for the Charity Awards 2016
StreetDoctors is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector.
The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly-regarded excellence recognition scheme. All 30 shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice from which other organisations can learn.
StreetDoctors has been been shortlisted in the Healthcare and Medical Research category. http://www.charityawards.co.uk/shortlist/
The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced at a ceremony and dinner on Thursday 9 June at the Mermaid Theatre in London’s Blackfriars. The black-tie evening will be hosted by former BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull, who will be joined by representatives of the shortlisted charities, alongside senior figures from the charity and civil society sector, and a smattering of celebrities from the worlds of theatre, television, music and sport.
We are really delighted to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious award. It is fantastic recognition for our amazing student medics across the country who teach much needed emergency lifesaving skills to vulnerable young people at risk of violence. Our work would not be possible without their efforts, and the young people we teach, who have passed their skills onto friends and family and are equipped to assist in medical emergencies. We are hugely grateful to all our supporters, our funders, and our many local delivery partners. Together they have helped us to grow from one team in Liverpool in 2008, to a national charity with 16 teams in 12 cities across England. Thanks also to our founders, Dr. Simon Jackson, Dr. Nick Rhead and Dr. Charlotte Neary-Bremer who took a brilliant idea and turned it into StreetDoctors!
