London Community Foundation are hosting the London Impact Awards: Powering Youth supported by the Citi Foundation.
The 2020 Awards are dedicated to the charitable organisations and young leaders in our capital working to reduce youth violence and helping to build positive futures for children and young people at risk. Youth violence in London is a complex and far-reaching issue.
There are four award categories in the London Impact Awards all recognising organisations that are leading the way in tackling youth violence by:
Best Youth Voice: Ensuring young peoples’ voices are at the heart of their work Best Innovator: Finding new ways to reduce youth violence Best Collaborator: Maximising partnerships and collaboration to have a positive impact on the lives of young people at risk.
Young Leader with Impact: There are also up to three individual awards for young people who have made an outstanding personal impact on the issue.
The winning charitable organisations across the first three categories will each receive a £30,000 grant and have their own promotional video produced ahead of the event, whilst featuring in media coverage around the Awards giving the opportunity to build new networks and profile. Young Leader award winners will receive up to £2,000 to support their professional development as well as mentoring and profile-raising opportunities with leaders from Citi, should they want them.
The deadline to submit a nomination is 5pm on 11 November 2019. Unfortunately, applications submitted after the closing date will not be eligible. Organisations should only enter one category but may, in addition, nominate an individual for the Young Leader with Impact Award.
