Mosaic wins Charity of the Year at Birmingham Awards


There seems to be no shortage of award ceremonies these days. Every profession, every art form, the public sector, the private sector, all of them have a date in the calendar when they dress up in their best clothes and hand out trophies to the brightest and best. And why not? The pace of modern life is such is that it’s all too easy to miss an opportunity to acknowledge the excellent work that takes place every day in organisations up and down the county.

However, there’s clearly a particular pleasure when an award is given to an organisation with which you have a connection. So you can imagine my pride recently when Mosaic, the mentoring initiative of The Prince’s Trust that I serve as Chairman of the Leadership Group in the West Midlands, was named Charity of the Year at the Birmingham Awards.

Receiving this award is testament to the superb work that Mosaic carries out across the West Midlands in using mentors from the world of business to inspire young people to realise their potential. Mosaic works in some of the most deprived areas of the region, delivering its programmes in primary schools, secondary schools and prisons. It also runs its highly-successful Enterprise Challenge competition in many local secondary schools.

This award is even more special as it was voted for by the public of Birmingham, demonstrating that Mosaic’s efforts are recognised and appreciated by people across our great city.

I must thank all of Mosaic’s staff in the region who work so hard throughout the year to deliver our programmes, but we are all indebted to the many mentors from the West Midlands who give up their time so willingly to nurture and inspire young people. Without them, our charity simply could not function and I am proud to share this award with every single one of them.
