Hammersmith Reflections – Young achievers recognised at Hammersmith and Fulham Youth Achievement Awards

Hammersmith and Fulham first ever Youth Achievement awards was organised by Hammersmith and Fulham Young Foundation on 26 February 2019 at St Paul’s church to recognise and celebrate borough’s young people achievements.
Hammersmith and Fulham Young Foundation received hundreds of nominations from varies of stakeholders in the borough including teachers, schools, charities, businesses, local authority, residents and many others, ahead of the awards ceremony. A local panel of judges chose the most deserving winners from the nomination received for their achievements over the last two years.
This award ceremony was timely and needed specially at the time where young people are witnessing negative media coverage due to the recent rise of knife crimes. The ceremony underscored that the majority of young people are law-abiding and active members of their communities and the inspiring winners were testimony to young people’s positive contribution to the borough and beyond.
The awards, presented to H&F young achievers aged 11–25, showcase the work of outstanding young people who are leading initiatives making a significant contribution to others and it is vital that we continue to celebrate and recognise young people’s achievement to inspire further young people.
