`Celebrating Us` Cumbria Children in Care Council Annual Awards

Celebrating the achievements of children looked after in Cumbria and the people who support them.

We are now inviting nominations in 7 categories.

To get nominating...

Nominating someone is easy. From Monday 4 September 2017, click the link below and select the category you want to nominate them in, then tell us in no more than 300 words why they deserve an award. It's that simple.

All children and young people in care, their foster carers and people that work with them are being invited to nominate people for awards.

A judging panel made up of looked after children and young people will have the difficult job of choosing the winners.

Inspirational child or young person of the year (under/over 18)

Do you know a child or young person who has really stood out and inspired you? Maybe they've achieved something extraordinary, given children looked after a real voice, done great work for charity or something else that makes them special. This is about recognising that person who sets an example! This award will be split into two, with an award for those aged over 18 and an award for those under 18.

Educational achievement of the year (Primary and Secondary)

Do you know a child or young person who's really shone this year? Maybe they've made great progress, achieved outstanding exam results, improved their attendance, overcome a challenge or got into higher education or an apprenticeship. This award will be split into two, with an award for those in primary school and an award for those in secondary school.

Foster carer of the year

Foster carers do an amazing job working as part of the team of professionals who ensure fostered children receive the highest standards of care. They offer fostered children a safe and caring home and family for as long as they need it. We're looking for nominations for someone who you think has gone above and beyond.

Inspirational worker of the year

This could be a social worker, family worker or any adult that works with children and young people in care. We're looking for someone who is passionate about helping, listens, keeps you informed, involves you in decisions and goes the extra mile to make your life better.

Community/volunteering award

We're looking for a child or young person who has done something special outside school that has made a difference to other people and deserves recognition. Think arts, music, sport, culture, working in the community, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince's Trust...
