Through the MP of the Year Awards, the Patchwork Foundation highlights and acknowledges those MPs – nominated by individuals and grassroots community organisations, and subsequently picked by an independent panel of judges – that have excelled in representing such communities.

The People’s Choice is their most prestigious award and was presented by news presenter Martyn Lewis. This is the second MP of the Year Award Sadiq has won – he was named Labour MP and Overall MP of the Year in 2013.

The Patchwork Foundation aims to promote and encourage the positive integration of deprived and minority communities into British political society.

Sadiq Khan MP said: 
“‘It’s a real honour to receive this award and I would like to thank all of my constituents who nominated me.
 
“After ten years in the job I still take great pride in getting to represent my community in Parliament – and I am grateful for the support local residents continue to show me.
 
“There is still more work to do, and I will continue to focus on ensuring the next generation in Tooting, and across London, gets the same opportunities our wonderful city gave me.”
