Campaign commended in awards

Posted on 23rd April, 2015 by Lincoln Against Poverty

Our Say No To High Cost Borrowing campaign has come in for more praise in national awards.

The project has been commended in The MJ Achievement Awards 2015 in the category of Excellence in Community Engagement, the second piece of recognition this month as it has been shortlisted for a Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Award for Public Sector Campaign of the year.

Say No To High Cost Borrowing ran in the run-up to Christmas and the new year and urged people to use more affordable credit or get debt advice if they needed it instead of turning to high interest lenders from either legal or illegal sources.

The project was helped by more than 30 partners, with leaflets and posters distributed with each month’s message.

James Wilkinson, Principal Policy Officer, said: “We’re delighted to have been commended for the campaign.

“It just goes to show what can be achieved by partners working together and we’re really grateful to everyone who supported and helped with it.”
