Tim Morfin, Founder and CEO of the children’s charity TLG (Transforming Lives for Good), has won a national award in recognition of his outstanding contribution in support of struggling children.
TLG is a national charity that helps churches to bring hope and a future for struggling children. Tim Morfin was named Charity Bank’s Change Maker of the Year for his work as founder and Chief Executive of TLG at last night’s Charity Bank awards.
TLG aims to help transform the lives of struggling children unable to cope within the school day and therefore at risk of exclusion and loss of education. The aim is to help churches reach out to some of the most vulnerable people in our society providing practical support in and out of school: from those children coming to terms with what it means to be ‘in the care system’, to young people living with a parent in prison or those that simply worry each day where their next meal is going to come from.
Under Tim’s inspirational leadership, TLG has grown over the last 20 years from a small church project in Bradford to a national charity supporting struggling children across the UK. TLG now works with over 200 churches and over 800 volunteers supporting thousands of children and families.
On accepting the award, Tim Morfin said: “This award means a great deal to me and is representative of the time and dedication of every single person involved with TLG. I’m grateful to Charity Bank for recognising the work we do and for the key role it has played in the development of TLG, partnering with us almost since the beginning and growing its investment in us as we have grown.”Patrick Crawford, Chief Executive of Charity Bank, said: “Our Change Maker of the Year award recognises the exceptional people who are the driving force behind an organisation with great impact. It is an opportunity for us to pay tribute to all the amazing charities and social enterprises we have the honour to work with every day as they strive to create a better society for all.”
