Make sure you keep the 24th October 2013 free. This is the night roshni will be hosting a wonderful evening of celebration honouring the outstanding work which takes place in minority ethnic communities, and we want you to be part of this. We will be hosting an award ceremony, with many prestigious invited guests, where we will recognise the extraordinary work young ethnic minority people undertake in their communities.
With six award categories, recognising work from volunteering to exceptional sporting and educational achievements, we want to acknowledge the young ethnic minority people who are doing something special. Individuals have the opportunity to nominate ME young people aged 14 and 25 between now and the 31st August, with winners announced at the Young Ethnic Awards (YEA!) on the 24th October.
Alongside YEA! we are running the Scottish Ethnic Communities 100k fund, which aims to inspire more of the excellent grassroots work in ME communities. The fund offers up to £10,000 for a community based project, allowing people to take their ideas for their community and bring them to life. The application process is simple; and our multi-lingual Community Outreach team ensure that groups can apply in any language. This will allow us to help those often considered hard to reach, who are generally those most in need of help. The shortlisted community groups will then be invited to attend the award ceremony on the 24th October where we will reveal who has been successful in their application and watch their dream become a reality.
This night is sure to be one of great enjoyment for everyone involved; recognising wonderful young individuals whilst looking to the future projects that will transform our communities.
