Youth Awards

Sporting Communities believes in celebrating the achievements of young people and our Youth Awards aim to highlight the amazing things that young people do, the life barriers that they overcome and the aid that they provide to others.

We are delighted that this year we will be hosting Youth Awards in both Derby City and Staffordshire. We would also like to give a special thank you to the National Community Lottery Fund and all of our other Award sponsors for their support of this celebration of inspirational young people.
