Do you know someone who has made a difference and deserves recognition?
Please tick the relevant category below and fill in the form overleaf.
The categories are:
o
o YOUNG
o
LOCAL HERO
Every district has an
unsung volunteer who
keeps the word
‘community’ alive. Many have spent years making sure
neighbours are well cared for, houses are protected
through Neighbourhood Watch groups or
campaigning to see that children can cross busy roads
safely. These are the people who foster children or
keep voluntary groups going. Please nominate your
Local Hero.
COMMUNITY HERO
We are looking for a young person who
tries to make the world a better place
for others. If you know someone who
helps the Community they live in please
tell us about them. The Young Community Hero
category is open to all those aged between 10 and 17
in November 2006.
o
COMMUNITY
PROJECT OF THE
YEAR
We are looking for a
project that has been a proven benefit to the
community it serves. The scheme should be an original
and judges will also look at how long it has been
running; the obstacles it has had to overcome; why it
was dreamed up; how it involves the local community;
how it is funded; and what next. So if you know of a
project that has helped to change your community for
the better, let us know.
o
CARING HERO
Candidates in this category
will usually have been
nominated by those they help.
But names can also be put forward by local
organisation, charity, friend or relative who knows the
extent of their commitment to caring for others. This
category is open to young and adult carers as well as
health or welfare workers who carry on offering
support after their normal shift is over.
o TEACHER
OF THE YEAR
We are looking for a teacher that goes
beyond the call of duty, that extra mile
to become exceptional at their job.
Maybe you know a teacher who has made a positive
impression. Someone who has such dedication and
enthusiasm for passing on knowledge that they have
fired up your imagination or encouraged you to reach
your true potential. Maybe you know someone who
teaches in a specific area, for example teaching
disabled people to ride or do sport, or a teacher who
has used their own time to help someone struggling
with a subject, or a very inspirational teacher who
encourages youngsters or adults to achieve the best
they can.
o
PUBLIC SECTOR HERO
We are looking for people who not
only work for the police, fire,
ambulance, health service or local
authority, but who also transfer the skills of their day
job into after-hours voluntary effort on behalf of the
community.
ENVIRONMENTAL HERO The world is changing and not always for the
better. At a time actions speak louder than words, this hero will be someone that
has demonstrated the commitment to make changes happen. Not only will they be involved in
saving the planet, they may be informing and educating people around them to really make a difference. Do you
know someone who has championed recycling, helped reduce pollution, is doing something about climate
change or is protecting our world for our children. If so this award is for just that person.
