Diagrama Foundation will once again be sponsoring the Children in Care award at a national event which recognises the achievements of those working with children, young people and families.
Now in their 12th year, The Children & Young People Now (CYPN) Awards provide a source of pride and recognition for those who strive to improve the lives of others and Diagrama Foundation is proud to be taking part. 
The awards offer an opportunity to raise the profile of projects and initiatives and present a showcase of learning and best practice from across the country that can be an inspiration to all. Initiatives can be aimed at all children and families within a community or targeted at those who are the most vulnerable or disadvantaged. 
Diagrama Foundation is sponsoring the Children in Care award, for the local authority or care provider that has done the most to improve outcomes for looked-after children or young people, whether in residential care, foster care or other types of placement. The judges will be looking for examples of exceptional teamwork, joint working or activity above and beyond the call of duty which evidences a positive impact on people’s lives.
Diagrama Foundation Chief Executive David McGuire said: “This will be our third year as a CYPN awards sponsor and we are proud to be taking part once again. We believe the awards provide an excellent arena for us all to learn of best practices in this field and to recognise the impressive achievements of those working with vulnerable children, young people and families.
“As Diagrama’s fostering and adoption team knows, improving outcomes for children in care can be challenging and it can take an innovative approach to reap progression. The previous two years have highlighted some amazing projects and we look forward to this year’s winner being revealed.”
The winner will be announced later this month at an awards ceremony in London.
