We’re working to bring everyone together to make Leeds a child friendly city—a place where children are valued, supported, enjoy growing up, and look forward to a bright future.
Tell us the best place in Leeds for children and young people!
We want to know about places in the city that are:
• open to all
• great places to play
Maybe it’s a place that gives access to learning, information or training, helps young people access job opportunities, or supports young people to express themselves and feel heard. You know where they are – help to give them some recognition and make your nomination
We’ll also be celebrating the people and organisations that make a big difference to children’s lives in Leeds
. If you know someone - a young person, an adult, or an organisation who does something amazing for children and young people in Leeds, there are more details on the site
of how to put them forward for an award.
The awards event will be held at the City Varieties on the 30 January 2014, with young people planning and designing the event, and forming part of the judging panel.
The panel will be shortlisting in mid-December, so get your nominations in soon.
