Gary Francis was Hackney CVS’s Youth Programmes Manager. Over six years he secured nearly £2m for projects working with young people.

Gary was a key figure in the local community and his knowledge and expertise helped to shape the Borough’s approach to tackling youth crime by ensuring a focus on giving young people opportunities to achieve their best.

Sadly, Gary passed away from cancer in 2012. We hold the annual awards to remember his achievements and to celebrate the achievements of some amazing local young people.
