About the Awards

The awards are designed to recognise all individuals who contribute to the community. This might be someone who has:

  • brought credit to the borough at a national level through, business, academic, sporting, artistic or cultural achievements
  • given outstanding service to the community over a number of years or in connection with an exceptional event or emergency
  • gone the extra mile to provide services and improve the quality of life for local people
  • benefited the community through community involvement or volunteering activities

All nominees should live, work or study in the borough. Their work or involvement must also be in a voluntary capacity.

All those shortlisted will be invited to a celebration event on Friday 9 September at York House in Twickenham. The winner/s will receive a certificate and a Community Awards lapel pin.

How to nominate

Any resident or local group/organisation can make a nomination online.

You have space for a 300 word nomination. The nomination should outline clearly what the individual has done to warrant a nomination, why this should be considered as exceptional, how they have improved the area in which they live or improved the lives of others. The more information you can give, the stronger your nomination.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 4 August. Winners will be announced in August.
