2013 Big Society Award
28th June 2013
Outward’s Volunteer Club was recognised by the Prime Minister with a Big Society Award in 2013, for its work transforming run-down community areas in five of the Olympic boroughs.
Commenting on the award, Prime Minister David Cameron said:
“It is important that everyone has the opportunity to get involved in their local community and be a part of the stronger, fairer society we are all working to build. The work Outward Volunteer Club does to help people with learning disabilities enjoy volunteering opportunities in their local communities is important in helping them to play an active role in those communities. Their achievement of over 3,000 hours of volunteering so far is fantastic and I hope they continue to help even more people join in activities to improve their local area.”
