THE PRINCE’S TRUST AWARDS

The 2018/19 Prince’s Trust and Tk Maxx & Homesense Awards celebrated the inspiring young people who have succeeded against the odds, transformed their lives and had a positive impact on their local community.

Founder and president of The Prince’s Trust, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales was in attendance alongside celebrity ambassadors, including; Phillip Schofield, Danny Dyer, Gareth Southgate and Joanna Lumley.

The Prince’s Trust help young people aged 11-30 transform their lives through education, training and employment. In the last 10 years they have returned £1.4 billion to society by helping disadvantaged youth, and last year alone they helped 57,000 young people.

RECOGNISING INSPIRATIONAL YOUNG PEOPLE

The national awards bring together the regional winners for the huge red carpet event.

ITV’s This Morning host Phillip Schofield and BBC Radio DJ Fearne Cotton hosted the event at the London Palladium. Throughout the evening, celebrities and Prince’s Trust ambassadors handed out awards to the deserving individuals.

AND THE WINNER IS…

Winners included Dylan England, who was a victim of abuse as a child, but has now turned his life around. Dylan joined The Prince’s Trust Team programme and now helps others who are unemployed, unconfident and struggling to gain the confidence and skills to start a career or further their education.

“Today it’s hard to recognise the person I was before because life has changed so much for the better. I am a Assistant Team Leader and a Young Ambassador, and I want to use my past to help other young people. I am so grateful to The Prince’s Trust for helping me get here; I am loving the journey I am on.”

Mentor Rahul Mehra was recognised for his dedication to running employability programmes. Through his position as GAP Store Manager. Rahul has recently designed a visual merchandising course to give young people the opportunity to learn about brand, product placement, design and Store presentation.

“I’ve always had mentors in both my professional and personal lives, and that experience of having people nurture me and help me grow has allowed me to do the same for others. Working with The Prince’s Trust and being a mentor to young people makes me proud to go to work every day. It’s amazing being able to do things over and above my day job to help young people get into employment and give opportunities to those who may have had setbacks in their lives.”

Inspirational Recognition

Pride of Britain Awards 

The Pride of Britain Awards give us faith in humanity as they celebrate and recognise some of our most inspiring Britons.

Thousands of nominations from the public are submitted for recognition of courageous, brave and outstanding individuals from everyday walks of life. A judging panel narrow down the shortlist and pick the winners (and we thought judging business awards were hard!). This year’s judging panel included Ben Shepherd and Susanna Reid, Coronation Street star Kym Marsh, broadcasting legend Sir Trevor McDonald, and Police Commissioner Cressida Dick.

2018 Pride of Britain Awards Winners

Amongst the winners were 11 year old Ella Chadwick who won the Child of Courage Award for her amazing positivity and fundraising following numerous operations on her liver, and finally a liver transplant which saved her life. You can read Ella’s story here.

One of the most poignant parts of the evening was the moment the 12 young Thai boys who were trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand were reunited with their rescuers. The British Cave Rescue Team were awarded for their outstanding bravery as they escorted the boys one-by-one through the complex and dangerous cave system 10km underground.

The Lifetime Achievement award went to Eddie O’Gorman OBE, who founded the charity Children with Cancer UK alongside his late wife, and in memory of his two children. The charity has raised over £230 million since 1987 and was back by Princess Diana.

Inspirational Recognition

Inspirational recognition means different things to different people, but it has one key attribute. It is there to recognise and celebrate the people who genuinely change things for the better for others. Whether that’s in a professional, charitable, or a personal capacity.

Every year we are delighted to work with the colleagues, families and friend of outstanding individuals to make sure that their legacy is never forgotten, and they are rewarded for their contribution to society.

Thanks to these individuals, we have a better future, whether that’s through their incredible contribution to charity, their inspirational impact on their profession, or their influential nature that changes life for the better.

Receiving a personal honour from Her Majesty The Queen, like an MBE, OBE, CBE or even a knighthood, is often the result of years of hard work that the individual has undertaken.

Would you Like to be Recognised?

Our experience of helping individuals to achieve this recognition is second to none, and starts with an outstanding nomination that supports all the key criteria for a relevant award. And they don’t have to be a Briton, recognition is possible for all individuals across the world if they are doing good work in the UK, or for Britons who are doing good work at home and overseas.

But it’s without this experience, it’s hard to know whether your candidate is really likely to succeed with their nomination. You don’t need to be an action hero to be recognised, just someone working to make life better for others in your own way.

If you would like to recognise someone for their outstanding achievements we can help you with a free assessment of their likelihood of success, and tell you everything you need to know to get you on the winning track.

So the question is…who would you like to receive the most inspirational recognition in the world?
