Do you know a community group that deserves special recognition for making your local area a better place to be? Nominate them for a Groundwork Community Award today!
There are fantastic examples of community groups who work selflessly and tirelessly to improve their neighbourhoods. Thanks to their efforts parks and open spaces are better looked after, libraries and heritage centres are being kept open, food banks and furniture projects continue to help people meet their basic needs and communities are blazing a trail in recycling and renewable energy. Groundwork thinks it’s time that their commitment was recognised.
The Groundwork Community Awards will honour those small groups and individuals making a big difference to the quality of life in their local area. Groundwork wants to celebrate and reward groups who often get little recognition and support and they also want to spotlight the power of doing good together in order to inspire others to organise and get active in their own communities.
You can highlight your own achievements or nominate a group you know to receive an award in one of 10 categories reflecting the huge diversity of projects and services being delivered by community volunteers.
· Best community group contribution to health and wellbeing
· Best community group contribution to environmental sustainability
· Best community group contribution to community cohesion
· Best community group contribution to education or employment
· Best community project on a social housing estate
· Best community partnership with business
· Best community garden or green space
· Community leader of the year
· Young community leader of the year
· Community group of the year
The deadline for nominations is 25 August. Shortlisted community groups will be honoured at a prestigious national awards ceremony in central London on the evening of 2 November and their stories will be widely promoted so that others can learn from their success.
