Epworth Investment Management was delighted to sponsor the Children and Youth Award at the Charity Awards 2021, which was held virtually on 10 June 2021. After a very challenging year for UK charities, it was a great way to celebrate the fantastic work and achievements of the charity sector.
The shortlist of nominees in our category was very strong. It included Aberlour Child Care Trust, who developed an intensive programme to closely support families where children were at risk of being taken into care, and Lifelites, who has been donating technology to children’s hospices around the UK since 1999.
We offer warmest congratulations to our category winner, Friends Families and Travellers. They educate young Gypsies and Travellers about health issues. This is incredibly important as Gypsy and Traveller communities face some of the most severe health inequalities and their life expectancy is 10 to 25 years shorter than the general population.
