Celebrating the Children's workforce

The Children and Young People Now Awards 2014, are now open for entries to find the best organisations, projects, teams and individuals working with children, young people and families across the UK.

These awards help to raise the profile of the sector by shining a light on best practice.  Dedicated professionals across the country work day in, day out, to improve the life chances of so many children and young people, despite often challenging circumstances.  This is your chance to be recognised and celebrated.

This year, two new categories have been introduced: the Young Carers Award, for the initiative that has made the biggest contribution in improving outcomes for young people who care for a relative or friend, or the Leaving Care Award, which recognises excellence in services for young people leaving the care system.
