Charity Awards 2007
Mothertongue won one of the most prestigious accolades to be awarded in the charity sector at the Charity Awards 2007, sponsored by the Charities Aid Foundation and The Times' Public Agenda section. Mothertongue picked up the coveted award in the Social Care, Welfare and Religion category at a glittering award ceremony in London, on Thursday 21st June.
The ceremony, the eighth annual Charity Awards event to take place, is the only national awards scheme in the UK to recognise excellence in the management of charities, acknowledging the outstanding work and achievements of charities from across the UK and the tireless commitment of the people behind them.
Designed to highlight the management achievements of charities in order to help spread good practice throughout the sector, the award was presented to Mothertongue for its excellent work in offering culturally sensitive counselling in different languages, enabling users to express themselves confidently and effectively. The Charity Awards judges were looking for examples of excellence from which other organisations can learn. They felt that the difference Mothertongue has made in this area was especially deserving of that recognition.
