Lord Mayor's Dragon Award 2011 - Economic Regeneration
On 20 September 2011, at the annual Dragon Awards dinner, Lord Mayor of the City of London Michael Bear revealed that Lakehouse was an inspirational winner of the capital's most esteemed Community Engagement awards.
The 2011 Dragon Awards, now in their 24th year, celebrate some of the most impressive achievements of companies, both large and small, in supporting their local communities throughout the capital.
Lakehouse Legacy was established in 2007 to target and expand the number of apprentices from disadvantaged backgrounds that Lakehouse recruited. The success of this project led to the development of the Building Lives Training Academy - a registered social enterprise that delivers training and employment for disadvantaged individuals in the communities that Lakehouse works within. Other partners in the project include One Housing Group; Broadway; and Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College.
Lord Mayor Michael Bear said, "This year's entrants to the Dragon Awards have created over 5,000 work opportunities in the capital and contributed over 12,500 days of volunteering. The quality of each entrant has been undoubtedly strong and in every way impressive, and demonstrates how businesses can effectively support their local communities."
