Groundwork Community Awards: Nominations now open

Posted on the 26th June 2017

Do you know a community group that deserves special recognition for making your local area a better place to live?

If so, then Groundwork would like you to nominate them to receive a Groundwork Community Award.

There are fantastic examples of community groups who work selflessly and tirelessly to improve their neighbourhoods. Thanks to their efforts our 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.

We think it’s time that their commitment was recognised.

The Groundwork Community Awards will honour those small groups making a big difference to the quality of life in their local area. Groundwork want to celebrate and reward groups who often get little recognition and support. They also want to spotlight the power of doing good together so that we can inspire others to organise and get active in their own communities.

Our awards are simple to enter – 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.

The deadline for nominations is 25 August. Shortlisted community groups will be honoured at their 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.

Nominate your heroes now.
