Groundwork Community Award

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

The Groundwork Community Awards will honour those small groups making a big difference to the quality of life in their local area. It celebrates and rewards groups who often get little recognition and support. It also spotlights the power of doing good together so that others can be inspired to organise and get active in their own communities.

The 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.

Deadline for nominations: Friday 25 August 2017

Shortlisted community groups will be honoured at a prestigious national awards ceremony in central London on the evening of 2 November 2017 and their stories will be widely promoted so that others can learn from their success.

Nominate your heroes now.
