Vote for the YES Project in the National Lottery Awards

Our youth employability project, the YES Project, is one of the finalists in The 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards and we need your votes to win.

The YES (Youth Employability Support) Project is a three-year scheme which has helped more than 400 people not in education, employment or training aged 15-24 to improve their chances of work and overcome the barriers they face.

The project has beaten off 700 other potential finalists and is now in the final 10 organisations. The winner will be determined by a public vote, so please place your vote and help this Leicester and Leicestershire-based project to gain the recognition it deserves on the national stage.

How to vote

Voting is easy:

  1. Visit the National Lottery Awards website and place a vote using your email address, OR

We’d really appreciate your vote, so please support the YES Project and help us to win this year’s National Lottery Community and Charity Award!
