Headliners (UK) is delighted to announced that the charity has been highly commended in the Medium Organisation Category at the Leadership & Good Governance Awards 2021.

The Good Governance Awards showcased how good governance and driving social change are essentially interlinked and will provide an opportunity to celebrate what is best in the sector. The awards were established in 2016 as a result of a key recommendation in the Giving Leadership, Giving Time research published in December 2015 by the VSB Foundation and Volunteer Now.

Chair of Headliners (UK), Jon Hudson, commented:

"I am delighted Headliners (UK) has been recognised for its outstanding work over the past year as we have sought to strengthen our approach to governance. This has included the recruitment of a refreshed board with a range of skills and from a range of backgrounds, to reviewing and refreshing our policies and procedures. This approach is essential to how to achieve our mission and enhance the lives of young people we work with."
