Lighting the Fire, the UK’s national youth conflict awards, celebrates the individuals and projects supporting young people with conflict in their lives across the UK.

This year we received an overwhelming response to the awards and had a record number of nominations coming in to recognise the amazing work being done across the youth sector.

We are very excited to announce the shortlisted nominees for Lighting the Fire 2018.

We received a record number of entries this year which were all of an incredibly high standard and demonstrate the inspiring and dedicated work currently going on to support young people facing conflict across the UK. Winners will be announced on Wednesday 23rd May at our awards ceremony at Bloomberg's new Headquarters.
