The Cleveland Awards Show: Winners!

The Cleveland Awards

Last week we hosted the first ever Cleveland Awards Show as part of the Young Carers’ Conference ‘Happy Herts’.

Throughout January Young Carers could nominate professionals and adults that had made a difference to their life, or to the life of other young carers in Hertfordshire. The awards were designed by young carers, voted for by young carers, and the winners were selected by a panel of impartial young carers.

We received so many nominations for some wonderful people, and the panel said how difficult it was to choose.

We were delighted that all of the winners were able to The Clevelands Award Show, to receive their award.

The winners were…

One-to-one Support for Young carers: Vanda Adams, from Commonswood School in Welwyn.

Most Charitable Contribution: Ware Joggers

Gives a Voice to Young Carers: Jackie Graham, Young Carers Support Advisor from Carers in Hertfordshire

A Special Thank You: Steve Penstone-Smith, long-time supporter of Young Carers in Hertfordshire

Group Events for Young Carers: Tracy Lee, Youth Worker At Youth Connexions Welwyn/Hatfield

A huge congratulations to the winners of the awards and all the nominees – thank you for the fantastic support you are giving young carers in Hertfordshire.

We had a special surprise award on the day to recognise the time, effort and support that one person has given the Young Carers Council over the past 8 years. Kasey, a member of the Young Carers’ Council since 2009, was awarded the Services to the Young Carers’ Council award to say a huge thank you to everything he has done for us over the years. Well done Kasey!
