London Youth Awards 2023 Nominations


Volunteers are vital to the existence of all charitable organisations. This award recognises an individual whose voluntary work reflects the incredible contribution made to the capital’s youth sector by volunteers. 

Whether it’s mentoring young people, supporting governance and development, or helping to facilitate sessions with young people, we welcome nominations for all volunteers.


Our award principles

  • We’re not looking for the best-written application. 
  • We’re looking for nominations that tell a story and demonstrate impact, backed up by relevant information. 
  • Bullet points are absolutely fine. 
  • We don’t require or accept any supplementary documentation (e.g. impact reports, imagery, videos, budgets). 
  • The awards recognise youth work’s impact on young people – great nominations will include their voices. 

What does it recognise?

This award recognises an individual who freely gives their time, knowledge and skills to support community youth work – be that working directly with young people, delivering project(s), or supporting good governance. 


An individual who volunteers at a London Youth member must be nominated by someone else at the same organisation for this award. 

What to include in your answers?

Good nominations will include quantifiable evidence (eg number of hours) and impact on young people or an organisation. Use question one to tell us how this volunteer has shown exceptional commitment to supporting a youth organisation or young person specifically (e.g. specific activities or support they gave). Use question two to tell us about the demonstrable impact of this person’s volunteering on a youth organisation, young person/people, or project (e.g. include quotes from young people). We suggest you use question three to provide any quantifiable evidence (e.g. number of hours worked) showing the scope of the nominee’s work. 


If you require the information on this page, or the form below, in an alternative format AND/OR if you would like to submit your answers in a different way (e.g. by recording a video), please get in touch by emailing with subject line ALTERNATIVE FORMAT.


You must read our full Terms and Conditions of the London Youth Awards 2023, which also includes information on awards eligibility.


The closing date for nominations for the London Youth Awards is 23:59 on Sunday 1st October 2023. Any nominations received after this time will not be considered. 


If you have any issues submitting your nomination, please email, including if you require this information in an alternative format (as a small team, we’re unable to offer advice on how best to answer the questions but will support with technical issues wherever possible).
