Nominate your unsung heroes

Nominations are open for the Suffolk Community Awards! 

In a unique partnership, Community Action Suffolk (CAS), Suffolk County Council and the Suffolk Association of Local Councils (SALC) have launched the new Suffolk Community Awards.

These collaborative awards celebrate and recognise the huge contribution that groups, individuals, town and parish councils make on the overall quality of life in our communities across the length and breadth of Suffolk.

Previously the three organisations ran separate events – namely the CAS Awards, the SALC Village of the Year competition, newsletter and website of the year awards and, Suffolk County Council’s Most Active Community Awards (run in partnership with SALC).

East Suffolk Council is proud to be a sponsor for the SALC Town and Village of the Year category, with sub-categories for small village, large village and town. 

There are 15 awards available ranging from youth participation and young person of the year to community building, contribution to volunteering, most active communities and village and town of the year. CAS is also delighted to announce a new award ‘Suffolk Good Neighbour Award’ – sponsored by Suffolk Community Foundation.   

There is a simple online application/nomination process through a new dedicated website. The closing date is 21 July 2019.  Full details can be found at www.suffolkcommunityawards.co.uk.

The awards will be presented on the 24 September 2019 at the Museum of East Anglian Life.
