Young Local Heroes Campaign

Apr 30, 2018 | VCS

Young Local Heroes is a campaign run by Shepherds Bush Housing Group. The aim of this campaign is to celebrate the accomplishments of people aged 16-19 in west London boroughs. This includes:

  • Brent
  • Ealing
  • Hammersmith & Fulham
  • Haringey
  • Harrow
  • Hillingdon
  • Hounslow
  • Kensington & Chelsea
  • Richmond
  • Wandsworth
  • Westminster

The criteria for our heroes is quite broad, we would like young people who make a positive impact on their communities to be nominated. This could be by: volunteering, running a club, assisting others or looking after the environment.
The nominations close on Friday 18 May, and after that day a panel of judges will review the entries and select finalists. They will then be invited to our 50th anniversary event in July where the celebration will take place and awards will be given. To nominate someone, people must complete the form on our site: It is in the 50th anniversary section.
We would be grateful if you could spread the word about the campaign among volunteers and staff and encourage them to nominate young people.
We are also looking for a judge who will be able to make an informed decision about which young heroes deserve awards. If you know anyone suitable for the role, refer them to us by emailing
