Sheffield United's Community Foundation has been nominated for the Multi Strand Category at The National Diversity Awards 2019.

The breath-taking Liverpool Anglican Cathedral will play host to this year's awards, to be held on 20th September 2019.

Britain's most inspirational and selfless people will come together to honour the rich tapestry of our nation, recognising individuals and groups from grass roots communities.

The prestigious black-tie event recognises nominees in their respective fields of diversity including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.
Leading global brand Johnson & Johnson were 2018 Headline sponsors of the UK's largest diversity awards, attracting a growing list of supporters including Adam Hills, Graham Norton and Katie Piper.

Actor Warwick Davis and Human Rights activist Abbey Kiwanuka received accolades at last year's ceremony alongside a host of incredible award winners. Kick It Out, the UK's Leading organisation campaigning for equality in football, beat seven other competitors for the Race, Faith & Religion category.

The Community Foundation have been nominated in the Multi Strand category due to their ability to target issues in Sheffield that affect people from multiple backgrounds and different walks of life.

Noteworthy projects include Fans, Teens and Children Fighting Cancer (Fans FC) which helps those affected by cancer whether they are suffering with, recovering from or even supporting a loved one with cancer to stay active and healthy.

PL Kick is another great project that has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help hard-to-reach youngsters in some of the most high-need areas and a whole host of other amazing projects that support Sheffield every day!

Nominations are now open and close 31st May 2019 - so don't miss out on your chance to get involved!
