Camden Youth Awards – nominations open

Nominations are now open for the Camden Youth Awards 2019, which celebrate the borough’s outstanding young people and the youth projects and services which support them.

We are looking for local people and those who work with young people to help put forward suitable nominees before the closing date of Sunday 27 January.

Our awards, organised by the council’s youth service, highlight the extraordinary achievements of the young people of Camden and the incredible journeys they took to get there. They also help inspire young people and those who work with them.

As well as the 10 individual awards for young people, there are four ‘best practice’ categories for youth projects and organisations which support them.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 19 March 2019 at The Camden House (formerly known as Gilgamash), Camden Lock Place, in Camden Market.

Over the past year, the council’s youth service worked with about 4,000 young people across the borough, with around 923 young people achieving some form of accreditation such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award or AQA awards. Our council and local voluntary sector youth projects support young people to be active citizens, while enabling them to develop their potential, stay safe, gain skills and knowledge and enjoy a wide range of activities and experiences to prepare them for the next stage of their lives.
Councillor Abdul Hai, Cabinet Member for Young People and Cohesion
