LJMU Criminology students win volunteering awards

Last week, LJMU Criminology students showcased their dedication and commitment to community service by sweeping the board at the volunteering awards ceremony hosted by ReachOut UK on Wednesday 20 March 2024.

Taking place in Liverpool, the event honoured the remarkable contributions of several Criminology students who have served as mentors through ReachOut's program this academic year.

The students enrolled in the "Criminology at Work" modules under the guidance of Dr Lindsey Metcalf McGrath and Dr Erin Power, dedicated themselves to assisting primary-age children in Merseyside. Their efforts focused on nurturing the children's confidence, character, and essential qualities such as "Staying Power," "Self Control," "Fairness," and "Good Judgement." 

The LJMU Criminology students recognised at the award event were: 

  • Caitlin Berry - Winner of the Mentor of the Year Award and recipient of the Bronze Award. 

  • Micha McCourt - Winner of the Staying Power Award. 

  • Carmen Bacon - Winner of the Bronze Award and nominated for the Fairness Award.
