Rampworx has experienced reasonable success in recent years and this has been reflected in the number of nominations and awards it has been nominated for.

Rampworx was awarded skatepark of the year 3 years running between 2009 and 2011. This is a proud achievement for the facility as it is judged by people within the industry. Its getting more and more competitive as other skateparks up their game and offer better quality services. Therefore, we will keep working hard to offer you the best facilities available; in particular our new extension, which will make us officially the largest skatepark in Europe.
Active Club Award – 2010
In 2010, Rampworx successfully acquired Active Club Award status. The Active Club Award is an Accreditation Scheme designed to ensure that clubs and groups meet standards that will lead to better quality provision. Rampworx was required to go through an auditing process that will need them to provide evidence that the club has systems in place covering key areas of provision such as;
- Coaching and competition (Coaching qualifications, insurance, competitions programme)
- The protection and safety of children, young people, the elderly and vulnerable.(Child Protection policy, CRB checks, Code of Conduct)
- Sports equity and ethics – (Equal Opps policy, Codes of Conduct for parents etc., set of rules for children)
- Club Management – (Affiliated to Governing Body, Membership policy, Communication with parents/carers, school/club links
- Volunteer Management – (Volunteer Co-ordinator, volunteer roles, CRB checks, Volunteer mentors)
This accreditation will provide carers and parents with the knowledge that the clubs and groups are committed to providing a safe experience for youngsters. It will also provide schools and colleges with the confidence to promote clubs and groups to their pupils and students. Finally the scheme will put in place an internal auditing system within the club or group to ensure that standards are maintained into the future. (The Scheme will be vetted by Sefton Education).
Merseyside Young Persons Project of the Year – 2009
In 2009 Rampworx won the Merseyside young persons project of the year award for the work it had done with the young people who attended the project.
