Renfrewshire Council

Provost Community Awards sponsors

Rewarding the local community

There's only a couple more weeks to get your nominations in for my 2019 Community Awards.

I meet so many people who do great work across Renfrewshire in my role as Provost, but the Community Awards allow me to hear about the people you feel go above and beyond to help and inspire their communities and I love learning about their stories and experiences.

We've already received some great nominations across the categories but there's still some time to nominate the unsung hero you want to be recognised.

Here are the six categories:

Arts & Culture
This category is open to either individuals or groups who have demonstrated their creativity through the common elements of arts and culture for the benefit of the community and not for profit.

Carer's Award
Open to any individual or group who offers care to a relative, friend or neighbour. There are many unpaid carers in today's society - e.g. a friendly neighbour who "pops in" to check on their elderly neighbour on a weekly basis.

Community Group
Recognises groups involved in improving their community, e.g. supporting others to make their lives better; involvement in local environmental project; helping establish a community event; contributing to improving community safety, etc.

Community Volunteer
Recognises individual contributions to the community and their dedication to the people and organisations that benefit from their selfless endeavour.

Employer of the Year
This category is for employers who wish to nominate employees who have gone above and beyond in their role, perhaps supporting colleagues, or giving exceptional customer service which has made a real difference.

Sporting Achievement
This category is open to either individuals or groups who have achieved sporting success, perhaps having overcome adversity or personal sacrifice to compete.

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 12 December 2018.

You can find out more and make your nominations via the link attached to this page.

I can't wait to see who you nominate!
