The London Violence Reduction Programme was absolutely delighted to be represented at our Young Partner’s organisation, Peer Power’s, Annual Awards on 8 December. The Annual Awards was created to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of Peer Power Young Partners.
This was the 6th in-person Peer Power Annual Awards at The Halley Space. It was attended by funders of Peer Power’s work, that’s where we come in, commissioners, the Chair of the Peer Power Board, the Trustees and lovers and supporters of Peer Power’s work. Read more for a round-up of the night.
“The fantastic young partners are a credit to themselves and I could see sincere pride in their own achievements which was a joy to witness” – Peer Power Trustees.
Peer Power’s Chair of Trustees, Dame Lorna Boreland-Kelly, described how important the Awards evening was in recognising Young Partner’s expertise and their immense contribution to the organisation.
Throughout the evening the Annual Awards were hosted by some of our incredible young partners, Rico, Jummy and Chrissy alongside Ella -Peer Power, Senior Youth Engagement Co-ordinator.
We also heard from Young Partners Rico, Chrissy and Many and their incredible journeys and how they came to work with Peer Power. This followed with an amazing rapping performance from Many.
Highlights across the year included in the Violence Reduction Programme, Health and Justice work, our training and national work, and the work we have done on the NHS healthcare standards.
“Think to yourself if… I could choose to be anywhere in life, knowing that I couldn’t fail, where would I choose to be, and start heading in that direction“ Many, Peer Power Young Partner
