Community Champions

We’re proud of all the positive things that happen locally and we want to recognise those individuals and groups that are helping make our communities great places to live.


Community funding

Our community champions scheme recognises customers (a person or group) who have done something special or inspiring in their communities. For example: helping others, setting up a local project, encouraging pride in where they live, organising activities or events.

There are two categories that an individual or a group can be nominated for:

champion neighbour
champion community group.


We also want to celebrate what our young people are doing so there is a specific award to recognise young people who get involved and have made a difference in their community. They might have helped out a neighbour, got involved in a local project, volunteered some time or just done something we should all be proud of:

young champion (under 18 years old).

Those who are recognised as community champions will be promoted and publicised through our website and our customer magazine, also receiving a certificate and plaque. For extra special contributions to their community, a £50 Love to Shop Voucher or donation to a charity of their choice may also be made.

If you would like to nominate someone for an award please complete an application form and return to or contact a member of our Resident Engagement team on 01803 869310.
