In light of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Young Builder of the Year Awards, along with Youthbuild UK’s other events planned during the year.
However, we are delighted to announce that the 2021 Young Builder of the Year Awards will be held on The House of Commons Terrace on Wednesday 13th October 2021.
Please keep an eye on our website for further updates.
