TAG attended the UK Youth Showcase and Awards event in Central London on Tuesday 13 November.  TAG was shortlisted in the UK Youth ‘Youth Organisation of the Year’ Award which was sponsored by APM and recognised the incredible work and achievements of youth organisations in the UK Youth network. UK Youth were delighted to have received such a high volume of nominees this year – showcasing how youth organisations are working to make a difference in young people’s lives.   Here is what UK Youth had to say:

TAG Youth Club

TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People aims to empower and optimise the potential of young people with disabilities. Youth workers deliver a range of programmes that encourage personal and social development.

Their core work is about enabling young people to participate in experiences, activities and opportunities that their peers can typically access through universal provisions. Young people at TAG are provided with a safe, caring and well-resourced environment to ensure their high care needs are met, giving them the best opportunity to participate in personal development activities.  They provide an invaluable service for the community.

TAG sadly wasn’t crowned Youth Organisation of the Year, however received a Highly Commended certificate.  This is a great achievement for a small charity like ourselves and to be recognised on a national level is so rewarding for everyone involved.

The evening was very special as the Showcase and Awards was attended by young people, youth workers and organisations from across the country giving everyone the opportunity to network and celebrate the good work being down up and down the county.  

The event was attended by HRH The Princess Royal and former Formula One racing driver Nigel Mansell.  After the Awards our Lead Youth Worker, Giles Hobart met Princess Anne and together talked about our work.

New queuing calling system in place at TAG on Friday nights. Mainly for use for the radio station. The new system will also be used for other popular activities. Each participant will receive a device (up to 18 devices). When it’s your turn the device will vibrate, light up and beep. It’s hoped that this new system will enable young people to take part in other activities rather than waiting for a particular activity. ... See MoreSee Less
