Bristol Young Heroes Awards is an annual gala dinner to celebrate the best of Bristol as found in the lives of its young people. It’s the city's ‘Oscars’ for those who have overcome challenge and adversity to live life to the full, both for themselves and for others.
Bristol’s Young Heroes are young people who are changing the world for the better. We want to recognise them and offer the encouragement and support they need in order to go on to have an impact on an even bigger scale.
We believe when we celebrate lives like these we all benefit. The lives these young people are leading are not theirs alone but part of the overarching city narrative all Bristol residents share. If we lift up a story we can lift up a people. In sharing, owning and celebrating these stories, we believe we can contribute to Bristol becoming its best.
We invite city leaders from business, politics, faith groups, sport and entertainment to join with us, the nominee’s families, friends and the Young Heroes themselves in making Bristol a place in which great things can be achieved in the face of great adversity.
