LBA GO GOLD
STRIVING FOR GREATNESS
Speaking of the criteria there were a ton of things which LBA did not did not even consider to have in place, which makes this journey that much more important, because it really expanded to organisation allowing a better understanding of what should be considered, what direction the company should go into in order to provide high quality structure and services to it’s members.
Billy Dove MBE JP, Chairman of the City Bridge Trust, said:
“Thousands of people work across hundreds of clubs and centres helping to provide the best quality experiences and opportunities for London’s young people. The City Bridge Trust wanted to recognise and reward the value of their efforts and to help the clubs financially to enable them to keep up the excellent work they are doing. It is vital that we keep investing in our young people as they are our future.”
The City Bridge Trust awards will be open for three years, from October 2013.
The London Youth Quality Mark is accredited by City & Guilds and is part of the national Ambition Quality framework for youth organisations (for more information see www.ambition.org.uk).
Rosie Ferguson, Chief Executive of London Youth, said:
“Quality youth work changes young people’s lives. Youth clubs don’t need to be big or rich to make a difference, but they do need to invest in quality to make the most of the time and money they have available.
“That’s why these new awards from the City Bridge Trust are so important. It means more clubs can afford to spend the time developing the quality of their services – and so will be able to do more to help young people overcome disadvantage and benefit from the opportunities open to them.”
