Throughout this year we have heard some inspirational stories of teams and individuals stepping up to take on new roles, learn new skills and support their communities – and we thought that it would be amazing to recognise these efforts through a special end-of-year virtual awards.

We’d like to hear from you if you know of anyone who has gone the extra mile, made you smile, helped keep the team’s spirits level up during a crazy time, done an exceptional job, kept going when the going got tough… there’s a category for everyone! 

  1. Team Leader Award – Inspiring leader
  2. Colleagues, Colleague Award – An individual who has gone over and above their job role for their colleagues or employer
  3. Community Award – Recognising someone who has gone above and beyond on the front line
  4. Long Service Award – over 15 year’s service 
  5. Outstanding Contribution Award – Could be a piece of work or a project and a team can be put forward as well as an individual
