Genie wins the Mayor’s award for social innovation Liverpool Echo says:
More than 200 people gathered at Liverpool Town Hall for Social Enterprise Network’s Powerful Together Awards. The awards celebrate social businesses who are leading the way in their fields, using innovative methods to improve the health, wealth and environment of the Liverpool city region.
Of the 24 shortlisted nominees, two organisations won multiple awards. One double winner was Genie In The Gutter, a recovery service working with substance-misusers who are marginalised from society. They were named Pay-It-Forward champion, sponsored by Knowsley CVS, and received a standing ovation as winners of the Mayor’s Award for Social Innovation, for which all shortlisted nominees compete. They were also runners up in the Creativity Awards and Profound Impact.
Rosie Jolly, chief executive of SENTogether said: “I could not be prouder of this year’s nominees – they all work incredibly hard to support the most vulnerable members of our communities on a day-to-day basis, putting social value at the forefront of our local economy.”
The ceremony was held at Liverpool’s beautiful Town Hall where hundreds of people congratulated Genie for winning the evenings most prestigious prize: The 2014 Mayors Award for Social Innovation.
We’re just a tad overwhelmed at winning the Mayor’s Award!
