Award Categories

Good Neighbour

Nominations are open to anyone in Cambridgeshire who makes a positive difference and who you believe is an Inspiration in the community.

We want to recognise those special people who give up their time to come to the aid of their neighbours and help make their lives better. There may be families who need a little extra help, vulnerable, disabled or older people, someone who is new to the area, a person whose first language is not English or someone who has been recently bereaved. These people in our communities appreciate the thoughtfulness, support and caring nature of a neighbour who goes out of their way to lend a helping hand.

Community Spirit (Individual)

Nominations are open to anyone in Cambridgeshire who makes a positive difference and who you believe is an Inspiration in the community.

Community Spirit (Individual)

Do you know someone devoted to charity or voluntary work or who has raised money for charity? Or maybe you know someone who has taken on a local project and made a difference?

Projects could include creating a communal garden, bringing neighbours together to tackle anti-social behaviour, organising social events such as street parties or providing activities for children after school or in the holidays.

Community Spirit (Group)

Do you know a group whose actions are making a real difference in your local community and are helping to change things where you are? Maybe they’ve been working on a particular project, or have been fundraising for a great cause. It could be a local sport group, or a coffee morning committee, the award will recognise and celebrate groups who unite their community or who have motivated and inspired others to make positive changes.

We would like to recognise the achievements of young people aged 18 and under who have demonstrated perseverance, ambition and tenacity.
