Nominate your Community Hero now!

11 January 2022

Do you know an inspirational person, group, or business who has helped to make Richmond upon Thames and their local community a better place? Nominate them for the 2021 Community Heroes Awards.

The awards programme is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the people in Richmond upon Thames who go above and beyond to make a difference. There are various award categories to nominate individuals or groups, including outstanding achievement by a young person, community group of the year and an award to recognise those making great strides toward tackling climate change. 

If you know someone who you consider to be a hero, submit your nomination by Thursday 3 February 2022. Video nominations are also accepted this year, and more information about how to submit can be found on our website. An awards ceremony will be help on 23 March 2022. Nominees should be nominated for their work in a voluntary capacity only.  

A full list of the award categories and examples of past winners can be found on the Community Heroes page. 

Cllr Michael Wilson, Vice Chair of Richmond Council’s Finance, Policy and Resource Committee and Spokesperson for Communities, Equalities & the Voluntary Sector said:

“We are lucky to live in a borough with so many people who commit themselves to helping others and improving their local communities. These people deserve recognition and celebration for going the extra mile without expecting anything in return. 

“It might be a young person who has led their peers through being a good example, someone who supports the elderly in their community, or a group who helps look after a local park. Whatever the good deed is, the selfless individuals or groups behind them need thanking and celebrating, so please get in touch and nominate them for a Community Hero Award!”
