Mahdlo is delighted to announce that we have been nominated in The Youth Work Award category at the national Children & Young People Now Awards.
Now in their fourteenth year, The Children & Young People Now Awards have become the gold standard for all organisations working with children, young people and families. The awards provide a great source of pride and recognition for all those who strive day in, day out, to improve the lives of others.
Mahdlo has been selected for the Youth Work Award as a result of its Districts provision which is part of a Hub and Spokes model ensuring young people have local opportunities, access to role models, safe spaces and activities.
Delivering out of 13 sites across Oldham, young people have the opportunity to over 60 hours of youth club activities and in the past few years over 35 organisations have been supported to build their capacity to deliver activities for young people.
The Youth Work Award is given to the initiative that has done the most to promote young people’s personal development and help them achieve their potential through youth work, informal education and participation in positive activities.
Aiming to recognise teams and individuals from the public, private and voluntary sector that work with children and young people, the Awards are a tremendous showcase of learning and best practice from across the country that can be an inspiration to all.
Raz Mohammed, Chief Operating Officer at Mahdlo, said: “The Hub and Spoke offer at Mahdlo was set up 5 years ago with a view to expanding the number of opportunities to get involved in Mahdlo activities for all young people across the Oldham area.
“The project has been a great success so far and to be shortlisted for this award is a testament to the great work our youth workers are doing.”
The Award ceremony will take place on Thursday 28th November at Hurlingham Club London.
