“The Jack Petchey Foundation was established in 1999 to enable young people, to achieve their potential by inspiring, invesing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development. Since its inception £85 million has been invested to support this aim.”
Kingston Young Carers’ Project has been running a successful Silver Achievement Awards Scheme since 2015, which means we can give out 6 awards per year!
What is the award for?
It can be for anything you think should be celebrated! Achievements can include:
• Helping others over and above expectations
• Being a good role model/mentor
• Showing bravery
• Overcoming a personal challenge
• Trying really hard
• Breaking through a personal barrier
What do the winners get?
• A framed certificate & badge
• £250 to spend on something that will benefit YCP (e.g. a trip)
• Membership of the JPF Achievers Community
• A chance to go to a celebration event to be recognised on stage, with family and friends!
