YLC - National Diversity Award

Young Lambeth Co-op’s Pathway Co-ordinator Abdul-Karim Abdullah did Lambeth proud by winning a National Diversity Award last month for his outstanding work as a role model. Held in Liverpool’s breathtaking Anglican Cathedral, this is the UK’s largest diversity awards event. Sir Lenny Henry CBE, told the audience: “Congratulations to everyone who has been nominated, you’re all doing a fantastic job, rock on!”

Other special guests on the evening included Celebrity Big Brother’s Gabby Allen and Love Island favourite Samira Mighty who were there to praise individuals and organisations for their outstanding achievements. They were joined by cast members from Hollyoaks, Emmerdale and Coronation Street and The Gloves are Off presenter Johnny Nelson. Our Lambeth star was celebrated on Twitter by the council, Lambeth Police and community organisations including Juviens, Bright Centres and the Spirit of London Awards.

Get the word out about this. Abdul-Karim’s achievement should be an inspiration for the young people you work with to seek to achieve more and for all the committed professional’s working in the Lambeth youth sector to continue improving young people’s lives.


Inviting you to the launch of a new online exhibition called Know Your Roots on the 6th November from 3-6pm. This will take place at the Clore Learning Centre, Museum of London. Please register your attendance through this link.
