MP of the Year Awards
The Patchwork Foundation believes in promoting and highlighting best practice in the area of under-represented, deprived and minority community engagement. Each year MPs across the country work closely with such communities, with many MPs delivering excellent representation and coverage to otherwise underrepresented segments of society.
The Patchwork Foundation rewards those winning MPs – nominated by individuals or grassroots community organisations and selected by an independent panel of judges – by acknowledging them as the MPs of the Year.
