The time has come to nominate your next Child Friendly Leeds champions, as the prestigious awards approach their 7th year.
The Child Friendly Leeds Awards are an opportunity to celebrate all the fantastic work that individuals and organisations across the city are doing to make Leeds the best city for children and young people to grow up in.
The Awards will take place in February 2020, and will be organised and delivered by a group of enthusiastic young people, supported by Leeds City Varieties and Leeds City Council.
Giving young people the opportunity to design the Awards demonstrates the value Leeds places on their voice and influence. Through harnessing their talent and creativity, the city can continue to deliver on its commitment to putting children and young people at the heart of everything it does – placing them at the forefront of the highly anticipated Awards. The energy that the young people bring has inevitably contributed to the Child Friendly Leeds Awards becoming a flagship event in the city.
The Awards recognise the achievements of the city’s children and young people as well as the individuals, places and organisations that help to drive forward Leeds’ Child Friendly ambitions. The Awards pay a particular tribute to the help available for those children and young people who may have additional challenges – including children who are looked after by the council, or are particularly vulnerable, and those with disabilities or additional needs.
The closing date for nominations is Friday October 25th 2019.
