The award was established by the Investment Committee of St. Petersburg in 2015, and it is awarded to the most active investors who make a significant contribution to the socio-economic development of the city. Mr. Sokolov, the CEO of LSR Group, has accepted the prestigious prize.
"This year, LSR Group celebrated its 25th anniversary," Mr. Sokolov highlighted in his thank you speech. "And all those years, the key investment was the investment in people, and in a development of the more comfortable and better living conditions for them. LSR Group has been working with charitable organizations for many years now. We build various facilities for those who are not able to take care of themselves, and when, for whatever reason, the state cannot offer them the quality care they need. Our mission is to implement innovative approaches to charity that will change the stereotypes about how people with disabilities fit in our society. That is why our Assisted Living Residence in Novaya Okhta, which was built for the GAOORDI (Association of Public Associations of Parents of Disabled Children), is the unique and the first project of this kind in Russia. The Assisted Living Residence hosts the people with mental disabilities between the age of 25 and 42. These are the disabled people whose parents can no longer take care of them because they themselves are getting old or may have some health issues themselves. And the only alternative that is provided by the state is the psychoneurological residential facility. This is not the best, or the most humane alternative, as these people do not need a conventional treatment – what they need is social assistance. We have therefore taken it upon us to, as pioneers and innovators, inspire the relevant institutions to follow our example, and thus improve the quality of live for people with disabilities.
