A group dedicated to giving young people in Sheffield a voice has won national recognition.

Sheffield Young Advisors, made up of 16 to 25 year olds living in the city, scooped two awards at the annual general meeting of the UK organisation.

The group won Best Partnership for their work with the Sheffield Safeguarding Board, where they produced a film about fake IDs.

The talented team also scooped Best Project Award for their work with Sheffield’s new University Technical College.

Members helped recruit a head teacher and teachers and supported the commissioning process of the design and build.

Young entrepreneur Adam Bradford, a member of Sheffield Young Advisors, said: “I am so proud of the team. It was great to see some of them today and, to those out there wondering about the prospects for the future of our youth, Sheffield is a shining beacon guiding young people to better futures. The group is a team effort and I felt honoured to be a part of it.”
