This year’s Room for Young People winners have been announced, and we’re thrilled to see so much talent, drive and skill represented across all six award categories. This year we’re challenging convention by announcing three winners for each of the awards, selected by InspireChilli’s Team Young People. The awards, held in partnership with Clarion Futures, LiveWest and inspireChilli, will be held on 3 November at the Clayton Hotel in Birmingham.

We were delighted to see young people and staff members from Foyers represented strongly as award winners this year. It’s a fantastic recognition of the excellent work services have done to ensure young people still achieved positive outcomes throughout the pandemic, and the dedication, potential and resilience young people with experience of homelessness have.
