Philip Lawrence Awards Network: Young People Doing Great Things

The Philip Lawrence Awards were established in 1997 by Frances Lawrence and former Home Secretary, Michael Howard, in the memory of head teacher Philip Lawrence who was murdered whilst protecting a pupil outside his school in London.

Philip Lawrence believed that ‘every child is capable of greatness’ and the awards focus on promoting a positive portrayal of young people to help overcome negative media coverage and stereotypes. They recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people, who are making a difference in their communities.

The Philip Lawrence Awards Network (PLAnet) celebrates the positive difference that young people’s projects are making in communities all over the UK.

They want you to tell them what you are doing so that you can get recognised. To find out more follow the link:
