Sefton CVS are asking local voluntary, community and faith sector groups to nominate an individual or a team within the local authority who have demonstrated the key principles of the  New Realities Partnership Agreement and provided help or support to local non-profit organisations. 

The New Realities Partnership Award will go to the individual or team that have adopted a ‘can-do’ attitude when working with voluntary, community or faith sector groups. 

  • Demonstrated a positive ‘can-do’ attitude when working with a local group or organisation
  • Providing assistance in overcoming a barrier or obstacle that would otherwise impact on the group’s work
  • Understood the value and role of the local voluntary, community and faith sector in making Sefton a great place to live and work
