Young People’s Voice (YPV) – LGBT youth campaigning and engagement project at Allsorts Youth Project – has won the ‘Outstanding Volunteering Contribution for Young People’ category at the Sector Stars Community and Voluntary Sector Awards 2013.
Hosted by the Brighton and Hove Community and Voluntary Sector Forum (CVSF), Sector Stars is a way of recognising and giving thanks to community groups and voluntary organisations for all their dedication, hard work and enthusiasm. It aims to celebrate the influence we have had as a sector in the city as well as celebrating you as organisations and individuals and the huge difference that you make within Brighton and Hove.
YPV was announced as a winner at the CVSF Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 27th November.
The award panel included representatives from Sussex Police, American Express and Brighton and Hove City Council.
Jess Wood MBE, Co-Founder and Director, said: “LGBT young people need a voice and the youth volunteers at Allsorts have done an amazing job in schools and elsewhere in articulating what we need to change to make their world safer. The award recognizes this work and carries forward our vision that we are all in it together and that we must just connect.‘”
