Today we were at the Hilton London Bankside for The Business Charity Awards 2017. It was a night that celebrated and applauded corporates and their successful charity partnerships. The Business Charity Awards recognised the outstanding contribution made by Businesses in the UK to good causes, and we were so grateful to be a part of it.
We were nominated and won the Charity Partnership- Telecoms and Technology Award through our BT Work Ready programme with the BT Group and 5Star Active. The programme supports young people from at risk communities get into education and employment.
We are so pleased to have won this Award, and be involved in such a rewarding day – massive thanks to the Business Charity Awards, Third Sector, Active Communities Network, and BT for a successful evening!

“It was very positive for the Rio Ferdinand Foundation in Partnership with BT to be recognised and win the Telecoms & Technology Award amongst so many other notable Charities that work with number of different causes. This Award has now given us the courage to carry on with our work and help empower young people’s lives and career aspirations.”
