Following on from the success of last year’s event, the West Cheshire Youth and Community Awards 2019 are being held to celebrate and reward the work of our young people in west Cheshire. The awards will also recognise projects and the work carried out by dedicated individuals and groups to support our young people to help them thrive, grow and flourish.
