Groundwork Community Awards

If you know of a community group that deserves special recognition for making your local area a better place to live, then nominate them to receive a Groundwork Community Award.  

Now in its second year, the Groundwork Community Awards honour the small local community groups making a big difference to everyone’s quality of life where they live but often get little recognition and support.

The awards are simple to enter via an online system where community groups can highlight their own achievements – or can be nominated to receive an award in one of 10 categories that reflect the huge diversity of projects and services being delivered by community volunteers.  

Shortlisted projects will also be entered into a special People’s Choice Award, with the winner being chosen by a public vote.  

Nominate a community group by using the link:
