We're delighted and proud our 2024 awards will mark our third year in partnership with Burton Albion Community Trust . Together, we're excited to announce our host for this year's event will be the actor, comedian and impressionist, Jon Culshaw, regarded by many as the most versatile impressionist in the UK with a catalogue of over 350 characters and numerous tv and radio credits.
The awards recognise and celebrate the positive contributions made by many individuals and organisations to their local communities. They also emulate our aim of transforming homes, lives & communities. Last year’s event was highly successful and highlighted the wealth of good work that is being done by both organisations and individuals. Please read the award criteria for each of the categories, below and complete the simple form to submit your entry. You may nominate yourself, an organisation (owned by you or another person) or an individual, but please ask for their permission first.
The closing date for applications is Friday 8 December 2023. Shortlisted applicants (and those who have nominated them where appropriate) will be invited to attend the awards ceremony and evening on Thursday 18 April at the Pirelli Stadium, Burton upon Trent.
Thanks to our partners who have sponsored the awards and thank you once again for your interest. Good luck!
A person who is dedicated to having a positive impact on their community. From fundraising to planting wildflowers, or supporting older residents to get their weekly shopping, we want to hear everything about these individuals and how they regularly go above and beyond.
The most impressive community impact delivered by an organisation. We're looking for companies who in addition to their day-to-day business, go out of their way to make a difference to the lives of others. Perhaps they donate time and materials to help community groups, or they tirelessly raise much-needed funds for a charity.
The most impressive community initiative led by a community or small constituted group.
A person or group with a dedication to supporting and guiding young people. Nominees could be working in a professional or voluntary basis and can show ongoing commitment and understanding in their field of work.
A group, organisation or community champion that promotes sustainable environmental change, wellbeing and behavioural impact.
A person with an outstanding dedication to their role as a volunteer or care worker with older people. Or the best scheme or project for older people, which can evidence promotion of individual choice and independence while still providing support.
Age is just a number, and these individuals do not let their youth get in their way. Perhaps they're always baking for local charities, collecting for food banks, or cartwheeling to raise funds for a local community group. Let us know how these young people have shown care and dedication beyond their years.
A person who has given time and personal commitment to raising funds to support a cause that is close to their heart. This may be due to something that has touched their life in a personal way or for a charity or local project.
Someone who has had an impact on the community where they live or on people’s lives.
The quickest and easiest way to submit a nomination is online using the form below, which enables you to save your entry as you go and revisit it to make any changes right up to the closing date. However, we will also accept paper applications if you're unable to complete online, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post a form out to you.
When completing the form, please refer to the judging criteria, this will ensure you provide all the information needed. Please include your nominee's notable achievements during 2023. Nominations can be supported by work undertaken outside of this date range, however, the main focus should be on events during 2023.
More is more! Our judges can only mark what they read. The more information you provide us with the better chance they have of winning an award. Remember we don’t know them like you do! We need you to paint a picture to evidence just how much they have done to earn this award. As a rule of thumb, we’d suggest 500 words (roughly one side of A4).
All nominations must be received by no later than Friday 8 December 2023.
Thank you and good luck.
