Saxon Weald celebrates young people’s contributions to the community

Inspired by the mental health challenges a staff member’s son faced during the Covid-19 pandemic, we launched our very first Youth Awards at the end of 2022, to acknowledge young people who are making a positive difference in their communities.


Comprising of four categories, the awards offered members of the community the chance to nominate young people in their lives who deserved to be recognised for their hard work. The winners were then selected by members of Saxon Weald staff and Board, as well as Youth Provision Officer for Horsham District Council, Dan Fairchild.


The 2022 winners included:

Caring Young Person Award – Tyler McKean

Local Community Award – Harry Derby and Jacob Lee

Sport and Physical Activity Award – Mckenzie Box

Achievement in Learning Award – Seth Browning


Saxon Weald’s Chief Executive, Steven Dennis, was proud to host the awards ceremony evening:

“It was an absolute privilege to meet our inspirational award winners. I would like to congratulate Tyler, Harry, Jacob, Mckenzie and Seth once again, and thank them all for the contributions they’ve made to their local communities. At Saxon Weald, we are passionate about recognising the personal achievements of young people, so I look forward to celebrating with more worthy winners in 2023.”
