OnSide shortlisted for prestigious private sector award

13th July 2012 by Onside Youth Zones

Judges single out work on Youth Zones from more than 500 entries

OnSide North West is delighted to have been shortlisted for an award in the PwC Private Business Awards, now in its second year.  Judges – including the founders of LK Bennett and Talk Talk – have chosen OnSide North West along with just three other entrants, drawn from nearly 600 entries to the awards in total.

Jeremy Glover, MBE and chief executive of OnSide North West, said, “It’s fantastic that the dedication of everyone who has supported OnSide’s work over the past three years has been recognised by the Private Business Awards.  I’m particularly pleased that our innovative model of private and public sector collaboration, which has led to the successful building of four state-of-the-art Youth Zones in the past three years, has been highlighted.

“Without the vision of committed individuals from the private sector, such as our founder, Bill Holroyd, CBE, DL, it would not have been possible for OnSide to achieve our goals.”

Ruby Parmar, partner and leader of PwC’s private business practice commented, “Much has been said about the importance of private business to the recovery of the UK economy and these awards celebrate those private companies who have been leading the way in a difficult economic environment. In a year when the focus of the world is on the UK, these businesses really do represent the ‘Best of British’ and to be short‐listed from over 600 nominations is to be congratulated.

“The shortlist contains recognisable names and brands alongside some less well known, but equally successful companies across the length and breadth of the UK. I look forward to sharing all of their stories and successes, and demonstrating the talent and innovation in the private business sector.”

The winner of the award will be announced on 6th September at an event in London.  We’re crossing our fingers!
