The Growth Company has been shortlisted for the Sheffield Community Awards.
The awards, run by Voluntary Action Sheffield, celebrate the collective spirit, achievements, and resilience of local communities in the region, from volunteers and voluntary organisations to charities and faith groups.
Our United for Ukraine initiative has been nominated for the Employment and Skills Award, which recognises individuals or organisations who have helped others realise their potential through learning, confidence, skills, or employment.
United for Ukraine
Formed in April 2022, United for Ukraine is a coalition of business stakeholders from across the North of England supporting Ukrainian refugees arriving in the UK. The initiative is focused on a digital platform, created by the Growth Company, which connects employers with evacuees.
A campaign was created by the coalition to raise awareness of the support being offered to Ukrainian refugees in the country. Thanks to the awareness campaign, United for Ukraine has supported thousands of Ukrainians in the North, including in Yorkshire and the Humber.
Due to the campaign, keyworkers received a ‘Special Honour’ and media coverage at the ‘Northern Power Women’ awards on 20th March 2023 for outstanding dedication.
Responding to the news, the Growth Company’s Partnership and Integrations Manager, Timothy Jeffrey, said: “We are very proud to learn that United for Ukraine has been shortlisted at the Sheffield Community Awards.
“It is well deserved and testament to the incredible work that our team on the ground do to help Ukrainians in the North of England.”
The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony held at Cutlers Hall, Sheffield, on 2nd November.
