TCV won the award for their flagship Green Gym initiative, in which volunteers participate in free outdoor activities that get them active, help them meet new people and improve the local community. TCV were one of only four out of the 26 recipients of the award to win in the highest grade level.
The awards, now in their eighth year, aim to recognise the achievements in the promotion of health and wellbeing through policies which empower communities and individuals, improve the population's health and address the wider social determinants of health.
The awards ceremony was held the Royal Society for Public Health in London. TCV's Green Gym managing director Craig Lister and Joy Beishon, head of research, attended the event to receive the award from Lord Patel of Bradford OBE.
Lister said the award was "great recognition for the hard work of staff and volunteers across TCV who make our community programmes and Green Gyms such a success".
"The TCV team have a genuine passion for enhancing green spaces and for the health and wellbeing of people who come back to enjoy the sessions week after week. We can see the results as Green Gyms help to create healthy happy communities for everyone across the country."
