Inspire the House competition

This year, Parliament is hosting the ‘Kids Count Inspiration Awards.’ MPs have been asked to nominate an inspirational young person or community group that deserve to be recognised for their contribution to our communities.

We have some amazing groups and individuals in Haringey, and it will be difficult to pick which one to nominate! I have some ideas in mind, but I would like your views too.

Please don’t hesitate to email me on if you would like to suggest someone to nominate.

The awards will take place on the 24th June in Parliament.  Nominations close of 15th May – so let me know asap!

Here are the two categories in more detail:

1)      Best contribution by a community group

CRITERIA. Recognising a community group who by example, track record and commitment have signalled that responsibility lies within their own community to protect and foster the well-being and development of young people.

2)      Most Inspirational Young Person

CRITERIA. Recognising an individual young person, who has inspired others by their personal dedication, personality, enthusiasm, resilience, flair and commitment to one, or a number of issues affecting the lives of young people.
