TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People has been shortlisted as a finalist in the The Youth Work Award category of the Children Young People Now Awards 2018.
The Youth Work category is for the initiative that has done the most to promote young people’s personal development and help them achieve their potential through youth work, informal education and participation in positive activities, especially among disadvantaged or excluded groups.
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.
