| 01 September 2015

The shortlist for the 2015 Children & Young People Now Awards has been determined in another record-breaking year for entries.

The CYP Now Awards 2015 will be held on Thursday 26 November at the Hurlingham Club in London.

This is the tenth year of the Awards and they bring national recognition for projects and services that make a difference to children, young people and families right across the country.

Thank you to all those who entered from across the UK – we received a total of almost 600 entries.

A 16-strong panel of expert judges has scrutinised and studied all the entries to produce shortlists in each category. A panel of young judges is examining these entries and their marks will count towards determining the overall winners.

The winners will be revealed at a gala ceremony on the evening of Thursday 26 November inside the striking Georgian clubhouse at the Hurlingham Club on the banks of the River Thames in London – the scene of memorable CYP Now Award ceremonies in the past.

There will be dinner and live entertainment followed by the award presentations. We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an inspirational evening.
