The Creative Floor Healthcare Awards have awarded this years Talent & Diversity to three charities - School of Communication of Arts 2.0, Key4Life and Brixton Finishing School.

Beside celebrating health-related world-class creative advertising, agency people (various roles), clients and healthcare companies, the awards continue to be the only health and wellness award show in the world to donate a percentage of profits towards a Talent & Diversity Fund, that helps people from under-represented communities into health and wellness communication agencies. The fund has raised over £160,000.00 to date.

Any charity or organisation from across the world can apply for the fund. Winners of the awards vote on where the fund goes.

Marc Lewis, Founder and Dean, SCA said: “At SCA, we pride ourselves on championing diversity in every sense of the word. Over the past 12 years, we’ve been able to increase the number of scholarship places available to each cohort, made possible by our partners and fantastic initiatives such as The Creative Floor Talent Fund.

Everyone deserves access to the very best creative education, regardless of their background and I’m delighted to be sharing this fund with our fantastic partners at Brixton Finishing School, who provide a direct feed of creative superstars into our scholarship programme year on year. A big thanks to The Creative Floor judges who took the time to read our story and recognise our efforts to change lives, and our industry for the better.”

Eva Hamilton MBE, Founder and CEO, Key4Life commented: “Key4Life are absolutely delighted to have been awarded The Creative Floor Award. Your generous donation will go towards working with our alumni who have been in prison and through the Key4Life programme. These young men are now being trained as key mentors for Key4Life to help other disadvantaged young men who have been in prison, or in a similar situation, to turn their lives around for the better.”

Shaheed Peera, Founder, The Creative Floor Healthcare Awards thanked “all the organisations who put forward their proposals and every single company who supports this very special award show.”
