Following a public vote and short-listed application reviewed by a panel of judges Works4U won two awards at the 2014 Hammersmith & Fulham Brilliant Business Awards. At the Grand Assembly Hall at Hammersmith Town Hall, Works4U’s Community Engagement Manager Saskia Hornivius and Chief Executive Dominic Pinkney were presented with the following awards:

Best Business Supporter of the Community
Best Hammersmith Business

Although only a small company, Works4U is a not-for-profit social enterprise whose social mission is to help businesses to support the community through volunteering and related activities.

In the last year alone, we arranged for almost 1,500 business volunteers to give approximately 7,200 hours (or 1,029 days/4.07 working years) of their valuable time (conservative value of £144,792) and professional expertise along with financial donations and much needed equipment and resources.

From painting and gardening of community organisations in disrepair, to providing employability and mentoring support for long term unemployed and socially disadvantaged residents, Works4U enabled a huge range of activities to support the local community. Works4U is a small Hammersmith organisation that punches above its weight and is recognised internationally for the work we do locally. In July this year we were invited, due to our achievements, to facilitate a debate on corporate volunteering and how it can do more to support the community at the United Nations Office at Geneva.

Dominic Pinkney from Works4U said, ‘Winning these awards is fantastic recognition for the work we do and will help us to work with more businesses and so help more local people and community organisations. We had our fingers crossed for the ‘Best Business Supporter of the Community’ award but winning ‘Best Hammersmith Business’ was a complete surprise and we were just honoured to be short-listed with the other very good businesses. A huge and massive thank you to everyone who voted for us!’
