Minister for the Third Sector will reward social change 18/11/08

Minister for the Third Sector Kevin Brennan will reward an individual or organisation whose clear vision for social change has achieved outstanding results at the Social Change Conference on December 8 2008 in central London.

Brennan will present an Everyday Impact Award, one of four Social Change Awards offered by the Directory of Social Change (DSC), a leading information and training provider for the voluntary sector and social change advocate.

Nominees short-listed for the award are:
· Sam Gregory, who created a scheme offering work to young people in East
Sussex who are unemployed, excluded or have learning disabilities. Young people provide elderly and vulnerable residents with decorating and gardening services.

· Malawi Dream, an Oxford-based charity changed life on a Malawian island by
building a nursery school/hospital clinic, providing running water and a sustainable source of food and income, all with consultation and approval by the local population.

· Ruth Lingard, who established Fledglings, an Essex-based charity which
helps parents find good quality, cost-effective solutions to meet their disabled and sick children's special needs, thus reducing the isolation and frustration often felt by both parent and child.

The awards will be presented at the close of the Social Change Conference, a training event designed for leaders and key players in organisations working to improve opportunities for young people.
