Lambeth launches Civic Awards 2024
Lambeth Council is asking residents to nominate their local heroes for their Civic Awards. The awards aim to recognise the incredible work that Lambeth’s community does to help others.
Nominations for the 11 awards categories are now open and will close on 26 November. Once the application deadline is closed, all entries will be considered by a panel of community partners and Lambeth Council Leaders for shortlisting. If the Award criteria are met, anyone can nominate a resident, an individual, a community group, an organisation or a business that lives, works, or operates in Lambeth.
Cllr Claire Holland, Leader of the Council, said: “Lambeth’s people and their pioneering spirit, our vibrant business community, and our passionate voluntary sector make it the special place it is. We want to celebrate and recognise these immense contributions and incredible people by holding the Civic Awards 2024.
“If you know an individual, group or organisation that makes a difference through their time, work, or passion to help others, nominate them for an award. Our community works incredibly hard to make Lambeth the best place to live, so let’s show them our appreciation!”
Cllr Donatus Anyanwu, Cabinet Member for Stronger Communities, Leisure, and Sport, said: “It has been a tough period for everyone, with the Pandemic and Cost of Living Crisis. But we know that Lambeth’s community is unique and full of people who want to help others. They have risen to the occasion time and time again and we want to thank them for all their hard work.
“Make sure you nominate for the awards so we can make sure they get the recognition they deserve. I cannot wait to see the amazing nominations and celebrate with everyone at our ceremony”
