The Awards

Our success so far …

Early Years Award 2014 Winner – Starting Out

The Children & Young People Now Awards have become the gold standard for everyone working with children, young people and families.

Now in their ninth year, these awards provide a great source of pride and recognition for all those who strive day in, day out, to improve the lives of others.  They offer an opportunity to raise the profile of projects and initiatives to funders and the general public.  And they present a tremendous showcase of learning and best practice from across the country that can be an inspiration to all.


Early Intervention Award 2014 Winner – Starting Out

The awards recognise initiatives from the public, private and voluntary sector that work with children and young people from birth to adolescence as well as their families.  Initiatives might be aimed at all children and families within a community or targeted at those who are the most vulnerable or disadvantaged.

Crucially, entrants must be able to provide evidence that what they have done has had a positive impact on people’s lives.  CY&PNow Awards aim to achieve the wider recognition that outstanding organisations and individuals deserve.


Highly Commended 2013 – Starting Out

Now in their seventh year, the Nursery World Awards have become the top accolades for early years education and childcare.

The Awards recognise and showcase the best organisations, teams, individuals, initiatives and resources in the UK.  They shine a light on the hard work, innovation and dedication of those in early years education and childcare, illustrating best practice and raising the profile of early years.
