London Youth Awards 2023 Nominations


Youth organisations are a lifeline for many young Londoners. For many young people, their youth organisation is the one space they’re able to be themselves. 

Community youth organisations make young people’s lives better and make London a better city. 

This award recognises that while we must collectively fight discrimination and make our city a better place to be, youth organisations are already building a better London for many young people.  


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 builds inclusive and safe spaces for young people from minoritised or marginalised groups.



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 detail the group(s) of young people engaged, how they were supported and the impact. In question one, tell us about the group you work with and give us some concrete examples of the type of work you do. In question two, share qualitative and quantitative impact to show us why this works and the impact it has on young people (great to bring their voices in here if you can!). We suggest using question three to outline either why your team is best placed to work with this group (e.g. due to your own lived experience), and/or how you directly involve young people in your decision-making processes. 


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).
