Lighting the Fire is our annual awards event that celebrates the young people, adults and organisations that excel at supporting young people to manage the conflict in their lives.

Lighting the Fire


Nominations for 2019 Awards are now closed

At Leap we know that conflict can take many forms, whether that's violence, aggression, relationship breakdown with family and friends, low self-esteem, bullying or self-harm. 

Every day we see volunteers and professionals carrying out inspirational work to support young people to manage conflict - sometimes without even realising that's what they do. These people are in a variety of places such as schools, children's homes, prisons, youth groups or in the wider community.

This is now our seventh year hosting the event, which serves to celebrate and raise awareness of the incredible work being done in this sector; to build new relationships; and to bring partner organisations together with young people and funders.

The awards ceremony is planned and hosted by Leap trainers and graduates, and is open to all organisations and individuals across the UK.
