On Friday 9th February 2024 at Forever Manchester’s Birthday Party, we were pleased to announce Kings Foundation as winner of our Community Group of the Year Award.

The award has been kindly sponsored by CDL.

The Community Group of the Year Award is given in recognition of a community group or project that has made a meaningful and significant impact, strengthening communities, making a difference and putting smiles on people’s faces.

Kings Foundation work to reduce knife crime and gang culture around the community in Moston, Greater Manchester.

Moston is amongst the 10% most deprived neighbourhoods in the UK and unfortunately there are a lot of gangs in the area that young people get involved with. Born from the desire to take action, Kings Foundation help to support those affected, and work with young people in the community to prevent them from being groomed into gang culture.

They run educational workshops, including visits from Greater Manchester Police, and provide social activities with a focus on breaking down gang barriers and teaching young people the consequences and implications of knife crime and gang culture.

The award was presented on the night by Frank Robinson at CDL.
