The Award Categories 2024

Volunteer of the Year

We are looking to recognise someone who selflessly devotes themselves to a cause. It doesn't have to be normal volunteering, although it could be. Perhaps our volunteer champion runs a kid's football team, organises neighbourhood watch, is a hospital visit or is on the board of school governance? Please enter them in this category if they provide an invaluable, unpaid service to the community.

Community Project of the Year

Help us celebrate a project that has triumphed in the community. This will be a project supporting local people whether on a one-to-one basis or as a group. Maybe a community centre with projects that have had a long-lasting impact on the community. Perhaps they have delivered even against significant financial challenges or achieved results despite facing difficulties.

Celebrates the remarkable achievements of those under the age of 18 who have made a positive difference to others through education, campaigning, volunteering or helping another overcome a difficult situation or personal problem.
Clarion Futures

Business in the Community

Help us recognise a business which supports or makes a positive contribution to benefit and enhance community life. It could be that they support a local charity somehow, sponsor a team, or never fail to support community events. Don’t forget companies that have high standards when it comes to reducing their environmental impact, or who promote the green agenda to customers and the community.

This award is especially for anyone who has worked tirelessly and constantly for the benefit of others over a sustained period of time.
