Hosted by the British Youth Council, the Youth Voice Star Awards celebrate and showcase the breadth and diversity of local work exclusively within our Youth Voice Programme. They will recognise the workers who deliver work, the change makers that champion it, the Local Authorities/commissioned services that enable it, and projects doing things differently to address local and national issues.
This award will be given to the campaign that has had the biggest impact on the lives of young people in their local area. The winner will be will be voted for online from shortlisted nominations.

Youth Voice Worker of The Year
This award will seek to reward the Local Authority/commissioned service worker that goes that extra mile in their work. Either to include individual young people, develop projects or getting it in front of decision makers.
We’re particularly keen for nominations to come from other workers, managers, Councillors, and of course young people.
