We were over the moon when one of our youth work team, Julie-Ann Lyons, was celebrated as a finalist at the annual National Youth Work Awards at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow. Julie-Ann has been a member of our team for ten years and her kindness and warmth has helped improve the lives of numerous young people in the Dumfries and Galloway area.
The National Youth Work Awards 2018 celebrated Scotland’s first-ever Year of Young People. Co-designed with a talented group of young people, the ceremony showcased the amazing talents and impact of youth workers on the lives of young people in Scotland. The ceremony was co-hosted by Jordan Abernathey, an energetic young person who previously sat on the LGBT Youth Scotland National Youth Council.
