This is our final call for entries before the Wednesday 16 January deadline.

“Young people do so much to help make H&F a place to be proud of and we felt that should be recognised,” said Fede Dal Brollo, H&F Council’s Youth Mayor.

“It’s been fantastic finding out about some of the amazing things young people are doing every day. We want to hear more, so don’t delay and get in touch before the deadline!”

The awards have been organised by our youth council and the Young Hammersmith & Fulham Foundation, with help from local businesses and organisations.
