About Naphtali & Associates founder ...
Invitation to 10 Downing Street – 2004:
In May 2004, Tippa was invited to receive an award from the Prime Minister, Tony Blair and Mrs Blair. The award was ‘In recognition of people making a difference in their local communities.’
National Compact Awards – 2007:
With considerable input from Tippa, Birmingham won one of four Gold awards for the country for good practice and joint working.
He also won one of four commendations for the West Midlands for establishing The West Midlands Regional Compact Forum to share ideas and good practice. The forum was the first of its kind in the country.
"The Compact champion has worked very effectively to raise the profile of the Compact," says Liz Clements, policy manager and corporate third sector coordinator at Birmingham City Council.
"We now want to take the work into a different phase, with a focus on mainstreaming Compact ways of working across all member agencies."
Tippa remains active in using these skills to support and develop a number of charities, justice campaigns and other enterprises nationally.
