Youth Moves are delighted to announce several nominations for the Bristol Young Heroes award. The prestigious annual event celebrates the success of young people and youth project's across the city. 


Now entering it's sixth year, the awards see an array of famous faces in the city such as GMB's weatherman Alex Beresford, Broadchurch actor Joe Sims, and BBC Radio Bristol's Emma Britton presenting awards throughout the evening. To see a local Knowle based project in the running is impressive.


Denise Clifford (Youth Moves Lead Youth Worker) said : "We love the Bristol Young Heroes awards, and have attended every year since it started. To see more of our young people put forward this year is great. We have four 16 year olds being recognised, Elliot Carr shortlisted for the Superhero award, and Franklyn Bateman, Rowena Brown, and Shae-Ann Hudson for the Learning hero award. We are particularly proud to be shortlisted as Team of the year. Being rewarded for all the hard work the staff do throughout the year across South Bristol, is very satisfying.We have won two High Sheriff awards before, so if we can add this to title to that it will be brilliant. But to be honest we are just pleased to receive the nomination, and happy that people value what we do."


The Bristol Young heroes had a Nominee's reception at City Hall on 3rd Feb, and each nominee receives free bus travel, a Cabot Circus shopping voucher, free suit hire and hair styling, as well as a goodie bag fullof epic gifts on the night.

The event was due to take place on 1st May, but was unfortunately postponed due to coronavirus and lockdown. The new revised date is planned for later this year.
