Wandsworth Civic Awards

Civic Awards 2018 nominations now open!

Do you know an unsung community champion? We’d love to hear from you!

Nominations are open for the 2018 Civic Awards. These awards seek to honour the unsung community champions who make fantastic contributions to day to day life in Wandsworth.

We are seeking nominees from all corners of the borough – residents who have done anything from helping out neighbours in need, coaching a local sports team, giving up their free time to volunteer, organising a community event or carrying out an exceptional act of bravery.

These awards aren’t just about recognising length of service to a community – we want to highlight fantastic contributions made by residents of all ages who have improved the lives of others, or gone that extra mile.

So if you know someone who has made a positive impact to life in Wandsworth then please nominate them by Monday 15 October - we want to hear their stories and chance to give them the recognition they deserve.

You can read about last year’s winners.

How to nominate

Anyone can nominate – residents who know someone in their community who deserves celebrating, or by family and friends of someone who they feel deserves some wider recognition for what they do in the borough.

Nominees should be:

  • Nominated for their contribution in a voluntary (unpaid) capacity in the borough
  • Aged 19 or over (the Wandsworth Young Person awards celebrate our younger adults and children).

There is an online form which is the quickest and easiest way to submit your nomination. You will receive confirmation of your submission. You can also cut and paste information into the form and upload any documents.

By using this form it also makes sure we have all the information we need for the judging panel.  However, if you would prefer a paper copy, please contact us using the email below we’ll send one to you straight away.

The closing date for nominations is Monday 15 October

What happens next 

Nominees will be put forward to a judging panel after the closing date in October. The panel will select a long-list, along with those who will be announced as winners on the night.

We will be in touch with everyone who submits a nomination to update them, and we will invite all those long-listed and guests to the awards event on Tuesday 13 November.


If you have any questions or need help with your nomination, please email civicawards@wandsworth.gov.uk.
