UK National Honours

Nominations are now open to be put forward from the youth sector for the UK National Honours. There are two lists published every year at New Year and again in mid-June on the date of the Queen’s official birthday.  
As you know, the honours process provides a great opportunity to recognise outstanding individual acheivements and highlight the contribution of the youth sector as a whole. We know that there are many people in the sector making a significant and sustained positive impact on the lives of young people, and we need your help to identiy these important individual within the CLCGB. 

We are sure there are many people who would be worthy of an award.  As this year we will be celebrating our 125 Anniversary it would be fantastic if we had several of our Officers, Members, and Volunteers receiving these award.

#iwill campaign

The #iwill campaign vision is to make social action the norm among 10-20 year-olds, whatever their background. 

The CLCGB has signed up to this campaign to show our support to making social action the norm across all of our companies.

The campaign is about:

1. Promoting the value of youth social action.

2. Youth social action is ‘young people taking practical action in the service of others to create positive change’.

3. Youth social action creates a double-benefit, strengthening communities AND developing the character and skills of young participants.

4. #iwill is for ALL young people, wherever they live and whatever their background.

5. #iwill is independent, cross-party, cross-sector and collaborative.

6. The #iwill vision is that by 2020, taking part in social action is the norm for all 10-20 year-olds.

7. The #iwill call to action is for more organisations to promote youth social action and create fresh opportunities. Additional messages:

8. The campaign aims to improve the quality, quantity and frequency of youth social action.

9. It will break down barriers to engagement in social action such as a lack of adult volunteers or opportunities.

10. Youth social action helps build character and citizenship. It also improves employability and enhances well-being.

11. #iwill was launched in November 2013 by HRH The Prince of Wales and the UK's three main political parties.

12. #iwill is coordinated by Step Up To Serve, a charity established to coordinate the campaign.

Get Set Action for Community

Get Set for Community Action is a brand new programme, which aims to strengthen relationships between young people and their local communities through the Olympic Values (friendship, excellence and respect) and the Paralympic Values (courage, determination, equality and inspiration).

Thousands of 14-19 year olds – ‘Action Leads’ – will work in teams across the UK, building relationships with local community groups to plan and deliver at least two projects each, in the run-up to the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
