CYP Now editor-in-chief Ravi Chandiramani said: "Tonight's winners and finalists have shown evidence of how they make a real difference to people's life chances, evidence expressed not only in hard data but also in a real passion and commitment to improving young lives, whatever that takes".
As well as the 23 winners, there were a number of "high commendations" awarded.
In a pre-recorded address, minister of state for children and families Robert Goodwill said: "Since taking up my role in the summer as minister of state for children and families, I know I wanted to make equal opportunities a reality for all children and young people.
"I want to ensure I do all I can through government reforms to support these exceptional children and young people This includes putting children with special educational needs and disabilities at the heart of the process, doubling the free childcare available to working parents, supporting and encouraging all child and family social workers to be the best they can be and establishing a system where improvement is both continuous and sustainable.
"Many congratulations not only to those who receive awards tonight but to all of you, and all those not at this evening's ceremony who are doing their utmost to make things better for our most vulnerable children and families. I'm proud to be working with you."
