Category Descriptions & Guidelines

This award will recognise someone who went above and beyond to help those living around them during the pandemic. They might have looked after someone in their street who lives on their own or they might have supported a number of people in their neighbourhood. 

This award will recognise and reward a young (21 years of age or under) volunteer during the pandemic for their outstanding contribution to the community. 

This award category seeks to identify and reward a local business that stepped up to help the community in whichever way they could during the pandemic. They may have changed their way of working or even donated goods or services to assist the community at this time of need.  

The education of our children and young people faced unique challenges during the pandemic. Innovative solutions had to be found to keep them safe and offer continuous support when schools and colleges were closed. This award recognises a group or individual whose commitment and dedication made a real difference during difficult times.

Open to local groups, organisations or individuals whose work, actions or engagement helped promote health and wellbeing during the pandemic. From online fitness classes to initiatives focussed on mental health, let us recognise their efforts and thank them with this award.

This award will recognise a special individual whose hard work, commitment and dedication made an extraordinary impact during the pandemic. They may have collaborated and co-ordinated with other agencies to activate support or they may also have rolled up their sleeves and got on with it themselves! 

So many groups and organisations came forward during the pandemic to recognise where help was needed and provide targeted support to vulnerable people in particular. Collaborations were formed, clear goals and objectives were set and achieved.
