Duke of York Community Award Winners

We are again proud to be winners of the  Duke of York Community Initiative Award. The first award was given in 2013 and to be a second time round winner is amazing

HRH The Duke of York presented the Award at a ceremony on Wednesday afternoon, the 3rd April 2019 at the Army Barracks at Catterick.

David Sharp, chief executive said: ‘This is excellent news and recognition for our team here at Carlton Lodge who work every day to make the lives of young people better. We really enjoyed meeting the Duke of York at the prestigious awards ceremony.”

The organisation will be allowed to include the Award credentials in its marketing and communications. NYY’s mission remains the same as that of its founders in 1941 – ‘to provide continuing learning and personal development opportunities for children and young people’.
