Awards ceremony celebrates West Leeds young people


The achievements of young people in West Leeds will be celebrated at a special awards ceremony at the St George’s Centre in Leeds.

Barca-Leeds is a community based charity delivering services to adults, children, young people and families in Leeds, bringing people and services together to better respond to the needs of each individual.

Its Youth Inclusion Project supports children aged eight to 13 years old who are at risk of offending and school exclusion. The service provides one-to-one support and diversionary activities to encourage children to make positive choices and raise their aspirations.

The awards ceremony is for young people who have achieved their Leeds Youth Award.

Helen Hart, Operations Director of Barca-Leeds said:

“We are extremely proud to be celebrating the achievements of the young people we are supporting in Leeds.

“The Youth Inclusion Project supports children impacted by crime, anti-social behaviour and exclusion funded by Children’s Services, Leeds City Council.

“This event is an opportunity to come together as a charity in partnership with Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Children’s Mayor to congratulate the young people and their families. Sincere thanks to everyone who attended, a lovely example of Child Friendly Leeds!”

The awards will be presented by Leeds Rhinos player Brad Singleton, Leeds Children’s Mayor Isla Bentley and Kirkstall councillor Fiona Venner.
