On Wednesday 7th November, Primetime YLN received the silver award in the Best Replicable Project category at the Christian Funders’ Forum Awards at Mercers’ Hall in London for their Young Leaders Network programme. The awards showcased powerful initiatives that have been at work in communities through the UK and demonstrate how faith groups contribute at least £3 billion worth of social and welfare support to the UK every year, helping 48 million in the process.
Through our peer learning and interactive training sessions, PrimetimeYLN supports young people as they train to become effective leaders in their community. Through this initiative, young people are empowered to volunteer in their local community and gain a nationally recognised accreditation.
We were surprised but delighted to receive the award. We simply want to make life better for young people within our community. I’m really proud of all the Young Leaders who volunteer and give up their time – it’s great to see that others recognise all they do.”– Rosie Dixon, National Lead for PrimetimeYLN
