For Parents and Guardians

Participating in the Award programme is an exciting journey for young people and their families.

Through a strong yet flexible framework, your daughter or son can uniquely design their Award, choosing activities that spark their interest and challenge them to achieve great heights. You play a vital role by providing support and encouragement as they work towards their goals.

Supporting your daughter or son


The Award equips young people for life and work, whether it is through new unique activities, meeting new people or exploring an unfamiliar environment. Your child is responsible for their development and setting their Award goals.

With your support and motivation, you can help your son or daughter grow and develop. Encourage your daughter or son to take an active role in constructing their strategies to drive them forward. No other person can understand their strengths and weaknesses better than you.
