We work hard to provide support to Southwark's voluntary and community sector, we are very proud to do so and feel lucky to be part of such a vibrant and dedicated community. We constantly ask, is Community Southwark making a difference? We think we do and our 2018/19 Impact Report describes where we think we made that difference. Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate Community Southwark. Being accredited with We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Community Southwark in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.” Commenting on the award, Chris Mikata-Pralat Community Southwark's CEO, said: “We are delighted to receive this Award.
