The child friendly Leeds awards take place every year and are completely different from any other awards in the city! The main difference is that young people are at the heart of them – they plan, organise, present and run the awards (including operating the lights and sound and offering front of house and backstage support). The awards make sure the people, organisations and places in Leeds that you think are making the biggest contribution to making Leeds the best city for children and young people are celebrated and recognised.
Make your nomination for the child friendly Leeds awards 2017!
Do you know a great place in Leeds for children and young people, or someone who’s making a big difference to young people’s lives? In February 2017, we’ll be celebrating what’s best about Leeds for children and young people, and we’re looking for the people, places and organisations making Leeds a great place to grow up in. You know where they are … tell us and help to give them some recognition!
