Involve Northwest provides an essential lifeline to thousands of people on the Wirral.
The charity has developed a range of programmes which include social inclusion initiatives for young people, employment support, welfare benefits and debt management advice and support, all of which help thousands of families across the Wirral.
Chief executive Justine Molyneux said: "We hope to attract promising acts from throughout the borough and encourage anyone who wants the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience and win a cash prize to enter.
"The talent within young people from Wirral is vast and we have been fortunate enough get a glimpse of this through previous events. We want ‘Tomorrow’s Talent’ to be even bigger and better."
Councillor Tony Smith, Wirral cabinet member for children's services and lifelong learning, said: "There is a great deal of talent out there just waiting for the chance to get up on stage and show it off.
"Last year's competition gave our young people the chance to do just that.
"This competition is open to all young people with a talent; I urge anyone who thinks they have something special to offer to sign up."
