Unique Improvements was shortlisted by the Social Value Portal, for a national social value award, in the category of Best Third Sector Project. This was for the work the team delivered on prostate cancer awareness for Black, African and Caribbean men in Leeds.
1 in 4 Black men will get prostate cancer during their lifetime, this is compared to 1 in 8 men of other ethnicities. Recognising this inequality we were awarded funding to raise awareness of prostate cancer with the specific group of Black, African and Caribbean men, focussing on prostate cancer risk, testing for prostate cancer and the importance of early detection.

Although we didn’t win the award on the night we are still very pleased with the work our team carried out and the amazing job they did with raising awareness of prostate cancer with the target group.
Congratulations to Royal British Legion Industries for winning the award.
