After hours of deliberation by the Judging Panel, and more than 7,000 votes, the finalists for this year’s prestigious YMCA Youth Matters Awards have just been announced. We are delighted that four of YMCA DownsLink Group’s projects have been nominated in three categories!
The YMCA Youth Matters Awards is an annual awards event celebrating the achievements of young people, staff and volunteers. The awards are about giving thanks and special recognition to every YMCA, young person, service user, member of staff and volunteer whose hard work and unfaltering dedication have all contributed towards YMCA’s efforts to create better communities for young people and families.
The ceremony takes place on Friday 8 November 2019 in London and we wish all our projects good luck!
