The Josephine and Jack Project were selected from a national shortlist of 8 to be named Best Community Organisation in the Disability category at The National Diversity Awards 2019, beating over 28,000 other nominees!

Josephine and Jack dressed in their finest and took CEO Simon, Trustee Claire and Course Leaders Viv and Tom with them to collect the award at a glittering presentation held at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, hosted by actor and comedian Sally Phillips (more about Sally later!). Their award was presented by Love Cathy Earle, HR Director for NDA sponsors Nielsen and ten-times gold medal winning Paralympian Hannah Cockroft MBE.

Simon comments: “It’s an honour and a privilege to be part of these awards, which not only give projects like us a moment in the sun, but also celebrate so many people and organisations quietly getting on with such good stuff.

To win this award for contributing towards educating to protect individuals against sexual abuse during sexual health week gives it even greater meaning, and we hope the awareness if offers will allow us to have a real impact on the lives of even more vulnerable people as we grow.”
