Volunteers from Thames Reach’s London Street Rescue service have had their vital work recognised with a special homelessness award from the London Housing Foundation.
To celebrate its 21st anniversary, the London Housing Foundation presented an Andy Ludlow Homelessness Award for best use of volunteers by homelessness agencies providing services to vulnerable single people in the capital.
London Street Rescue’s team of 150 volunteers were highly commended for their work and received a prize of £2,500.
London Street Rescue’s volunteer coordinator Ashley Nur said: “We’re honoured to have received this prestigious award in recognition of our unique and dedicated volunteers. London Street Rescue’s life-saving service couldn’t operate without the vital support of its volunteers who give their time to help some of the capitals most vulnerable people. The prize money will be allocated to further develop our volunteer programme with wider training opportunities. We will also be holding a celebratory event to say a big thank you to all our volunteers and attract more to the organisation".
