Chair’s community awards

The chair’s community awards were established in 2003 to recognise and celebrate the valuable contribution local unpaid volunteers make to life in South Gloucestershire and have since become an annual event.

Nominations for 2020 now open!

The current Chair of the Council, Cllr Brian Allinson, is asking you to nominate your community heroes – people who have made a difference to your community. There are several suggested areas of contribution such as community development, promoting equality, arts, sports, play, environment, working with vulnerable or young people, advice and advocacy and being a good neighbour.

Group nominations

You can also nominate a community group, as well as individual nominations, just complete the appropriate application form, links to the right.

How to nominate

Choose the appropriate form for an individual or a group. Complete and return the form either by email or post by Friday 17 January 2020. The chosen nominees will be notified in February and invited to a prestigious awards evening on 4 March to receive their awards.
