Project awarded the runner-up prize at the DSC's Social Change Awards 2014

Our project to help people in the Coldharbour area of Lambeth rebuild their local community has won the runner-up prize in a prestigious national award.

Building Communities in Coldharbour (BCC) was a finalist in the DSC Social Change Awards, which celebrate individuals and organisations committed to making a positive impact on society.

We secured enough public support to come joint second, so thank you to everyone who voted for us.

BCC has worked with the residents in and around Loughborough Junction for the last three years.

The £550,000 project has provided education and training programmes and funded over 20 activities designed and led by local residents. These include art classes, money advice sessions and a scented garden. Each scheme is initiated and run by local people.

More recently the project has provided enterprise training and begun to fund local start-up businesses.

Just making it to the shortlist for this award was a great testament to the hard work and determination of local people in Coldharbour.
