“You are invited to attend a session on Wednesday 28th July at 12:30pm to 1:45pm hosted by the Cabinet Office in partnership with DCMS and Young Voices Heard on ‘How to master an honours nomination’ for young people under the age of 30. This free webinar is open to people of all ages who champion young people, but is particularly aimed at those under 30 years old, who are interested in nominating their peers. Please share within your organisations, memberships, and networks,  particularly those working directly with this age group. Registration is free.

During the session you will find out how the honours system operates and advice on what to include in your nomination.

We’ll also share data on younger award recipients that highlights the need for nominations from this age group. You’ll also hear first hand from a younger honours recipient Mete Coban MBE about how it feels to be recognised. Mete co-founded My Life My Say in his early 20s and been serving young people ever since.

You will also hear from a member of an Honours Committee about what they look for in a nomination.

You can sign up for this one hour session on Eventbrite.

If you have any questions, please contact Sophie Kimber, Head of Diversity and Outreach at the Cabinet Office at sophie.kimber@cabinetoffice.gov.uk.

“What a fantastic initiative. Encouragement and recognition as soon as we are able could make a real difference in generating the next generation of leaders.” Craig Spacey, Programme Director MOD

“Relevant opportunity here for youth organisations, young trustees, youth work volunteers and all advocates of youth-voice” Derek Twine, Charity Chair and Consultant

Youth Honours List 2012 to 2021

Young Voices Heard has been researching case studies of young people awarded honours since 2012 to promote greater inclusion and diversity in nominations – Queens Youth Honours List* “

*The #Campaign4YouthRecognition Queens Youth Honours List, focuses on young people making a difference and serving their communities or nationally, through youth social action, youth leadership, or community service (as opposed to sport and the arts). The case studies are examples of young people aged 13-29 who have received honours. The Cabinet office does not publish ages so this list is sources from media or case study reports. Its therefore incomplete and constantly updated. Please get in touch with amendments or additions.
