Lucy wins 2019 TPAS Awards

Xaverian student, Lucy Marshall recently won the ‘Inspirational Young Tenant of the Year’ at this year’s Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS) awards 2019.

Born and raised in Wythenshawe, Lucy is a founding member of the Wythenshawe Youth Forum, a group that gives young people a voice in their community.  She went to Manchester Health Academy and came to Xaverian to study A Levels in English Language, History, Psychology and is also completing her own Extended Project Qualification. Her aim is to leave this year to go on to study Educational Psychology at the University of Manchester with the aim to work with children and young people in the future.

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group spoke highly of Lucy, “She has always been an example for others to follow and has been involved in various community activities from a very young age.  Lucy is inspired by her own ability to help young people.  She has a natural flair to engage children and young people from all backgrounds and is seen by her peers as someone who will listen, not judge and even give sound advice.  Lucy shows a maturity beyond her years in that she also has an ability to help young people find their own solution to their issues.”

WCHG Interim Group Chief Executive Kevin Lowry said, “ I’m delighted that Lucy has been recognised for all the fantastic work she does here in Wythenshawe on a national level. I hope that this award will inspire our other young leaders to keep making a difference in their local communities. Our customers and the community are at the heart of the work we do here at WCHG and I’m delighted that the V4W programme, Community Investment Team and Lucy have all been recognised at this national level.”

Lucy was surprised by the nomination and the award, “My friend invited me to join the Youth Forum around three years ago, and it has been amazing to give back to the community I’ve grown up in. To win the award, makes me feel very proud of myself and makes me proud to be from Wythenshawe.”
