London Youth Awards 2023 Nominations


Youth organisations are a vital space for young people to develop skills and confidence outside of school and home. They are a space for the next generation of changemakers to develop their leadership skills and voices. 

Youth leadership is an important hallmark of youth work. 

We want to recognise an organisation that has worked to inspire young people to create change in the capital. 

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 is for an organisation that has worked to develop the next generation of young changemakers and leaders.  


Organisations that are members of London Youth can nominate themselves. Any individual can nominate organisations that are members of London Youth.

What to include in your answers?

Good nominations will evidence youth involvement within the organisation and include direct input from young people in the nomination. Use question one to describe a specific piece of work your organisation has done to inspire young people to become changemakers. Use question two to include evidence of the impact that this has had on young people in their own words. We suggest using question three to outline the steps your organisation has taken to become more youth-led/develop youth involvement. 


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.
