2018 saw the launch of the very first Locality Awards, held at the Locality Convention '18 reception.

The Locality Awards have been created to celebrate the most dedicated and inspiring people and organisations in the Locality network.

They step in when others look away, they fill a need that’s not being met, and create spaces at the heart of our communities where lives are transformed. See the winners below.
