We introduced this category in 2011 when it was originally titled ‘Personal Development Organisation of the Year’ (bit of a mouthful!)
This was then changed to ‘Youth Organisation of the Year‘ in 2012.
The category says a thank you to the many people who put their time, energy and passion into helping young people through challenging situations at home or school, or with family and friends.
Supporting them through academic or unemployment issues. Finding accommodation or escaping from life threatening situations. Whatever the scenario, there are groups and individuals out there, who are giving themselves tirelessly – some paid and some voluntarily.
NOMINATE YOUR ‘YOUTH ORGANISATION OF THE YEAR 2016’ HERE
