Transforming Lives for Good founder wins Change Maker of the Year award

The founder of a Christian charity that was set up almost two decades ago to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people around the UK has won an award for the positive change he is helping to bring about.

Tim Morfin, founder and chief executive officer of Transforming Lives for Good (TLG), was named 'Change Maker of the Year' at Charity Bank's Impact Awards 2018 for developing a small church project in Bradford into a national charity which supports thousands of children and families.   

On accepting his award at the event on Tuesday, which was held at Resource for London in Islington, Tim commented, "This award means a great deal to me and represents the time and dedication of every single person involved with TLG. I'm grateful to Charity Bank for recognising the work we do and for the key role it has played in the development of TLG, partnering with us almost since the beginning and growing its investment in us as we have grown."   

TLG works with more than 200 churches and in excess of 800 volunteers to provide a suite of essential support to children and young people who are struggling, including education centres for teenagers at risk of exclusion, early intervention programmes, meals for those from low-income families, and activities.

Joseph Aninakwa, membership engagement manager at the Evangelical Alliance, said, "I was very pleased to be invited to Charity Bank's Impact Awards. It was great to see TLG, which is one of our members, recognised for the amazing work the team, led by Tim, undertakes in partnership with a number of churches. The team is passionate about and committed to transforming the lives of young people and seeing them reach their full potential."
