Public Service Mututal of The Year

Employee Owned Association Awards 2019

We are delighted and very proud to have won the 2019 Public Service Mutual of the Year Award in the Employee Owned Association Awards. This national award celebrates a business that has spun out from the public sector to become employee-led and is driving great impacts within the business and the communities it serves.

Tony Carr, Managing Director, said: “This is a strong message of how well we have been doing as an organisation during a challenging time. It will take pride of place in our boardroom and will be part of our communications now and in the future.”

A strong mission and employees driving innovation for community benefit has seen Lead Lives take the title of Public Service Mutual of the Year. Judges noted: “With Leading Lives we have a mission driven organization with great business acumen driving great employee empowerment who in turn are driving more and better impacts that align with their values of support vulnerable people to live the life they choose.”
