Shakira Yates and Callum Postlethwaite on receiving their Inspirational Youth Award
Over the past year our young volunteers have helped staff plan, deliver and evaluate all sessions for children within The Blakelaw Centre and Simonside Centre. Shakira shares her great interest in dance with a number of youngsters in her Under 9’s dance session every Tuesday as well as working alongside Callum to deliver sports sessions to children during our junior youth clubs.
Both young people are an asset to our team and we are very proud!

The Howard League believes that projects which help to keep people out of the criminal justice system, by providing alternative, proportionate, effective and targeted interventions will reduce the risk of reoffending.
These annual awards celebrate best practice in diversionary work and champion work in the community that challenges and changes people for the better – be it with children; women; mental health programmes or restorative justice.
