We've won a Duke of York's Community Initiative Award!

We’re absolutely over the moon to announce that we’ve won a Duke of York’s Community Initiative Award!

The Duke of York’s Community Initiative (DOYCI) is a Royal Award presented to community projects based in Yorkshire. In order to qualify for the Award, programmes and organisations should:

  • be of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others; and
  • be owned, developed and led by the people they serve.

This is the second time that AAM’s been given an award by the DOYCI. We’re proud to be recognised for providing a valuable service to our local community. And equally proud that the Award acknowledges that the people who take part in our projects are at the heart of everything we do.

Kevin Sharp, a Trustee and Chair of the DOYCI Management Board said: "This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the Initiative, twenty years in which we have been proud to recognise and reward some amazing community groups and charities. It is a real pleasure to add Accessible Arts & Media to our list of award holders."

The Awards Ceremony will take place at Sheffield Cathedral in April, with HRH The Duke of York presenting the awards. We’re looking forward to meeting His Royal Highness, and to finding out more about the other Award winners and the fantastic work they’re doing across Yorkshire.
