This is now our seventh year hosting the event, which serves to celebrate and raise awareness of the incredible work being done in this sector; to build new relationships; and to bring partner organisations together with young people and funders. 

Nominations are now open for Lighting the Fire 2019. The deadline to submit nominations is Monday 1st April (5pm)

Lighting the Fire is our national awards event that celebrates young people, adults and projects/organisations that support young people to manage the conflict in their lives. Whether it is voluntary or paid; full time or part time; in schools, prisons, youth groups or in the wider community, our awards recognise the extraordinary people who make it happen.  

 

Last year, nominations came in from far and wide, from partnerships between NHS trusts, councils and youth centres, to those supporting young adults with learning disabilities. We heard about coaching programmes in prisons, a double decker bus that’s bringing together rival gangs, coaches using sport to support young people and projects that bring together entire communities.  

The categories for 2019 are: 

  1.  Young Leader (11 - 25 years) 2019 Award Young Leader (11-25 years) Pack_Web.docx
  2. Inspirational Adult (+25 years) 2019 Award Inspirational Adult (+25 years) Pack_Web.docx
