PROUD Awards 2017-18


Award Categories

We want to recognise and reward children and young people who are looked after or care leavers in Lancashire who have made positive choices which have had an impact on their own lives or the lives of others.

Categories are as follows:

  • Positive choices and achievements
  • Responding to the needs of others
  • Outstanding service to the community
  • U R talented
  • Danny Collins inspiration award

You can nominate:

  • Individuals or whole groups of children and young people
  • Anyone aged 0 – 25 years
  • As an individual or staff team
  • Children and young people that you have worked with up to 18 months ago (you do not have to currently be working with them)

When you submit your recognition form for a child or young person please share as much information as possible.

Everyone who is nominated will receive a letter and certificate of recognition. Nomination forms will be judged by a panel and the shortlisted finalists will be invited to a celebration event in March 2018 where the winner/s of each category will be announced. All the finalists will receive an award.  If your nomination is shortlisted the children/ young people and you, as the nominee, will be sent a letter outlining the next stages of PROUD including where and when they will receive their award.

Please be assured that we will judge each nomination anonymously and have also provided an additional box for information which will only be shared with the judges and not publically at the awards.
