Rewarding innovation and excellence

The Children & Young People Now Awards have become the gold standard for everyone working with children, young people and families. Now in their thirteenth year, these awards provide a great source of pride and recognition for all those who strive day in, day out, to improve the lives of others. They offer an opportunity to raise the profile of projects and initiatives to funders and the general public.

The Awards are a tremendous showcase of learning and best practice from across the country that can be an inspiration to all. They recognise initiatives from the public, private and voluntary sector that work with children and young people from birth to adolescence as well as their families.

Initiatives might be aimed at all children and families within a community or targeted at those who are the most vulnerable or disadvantaged. Crucially, entrants must be able to provide evidence that what they have done has had a positive impact on people’s lives.

Entries for the awards have now closed, the shortlist will be announced at beginning of September. Good luck to all those who entered!
