The Locality Awards are back, recognising and celebrating the people and the organisations who believe in the power of community to create a fairer society.
It’s worth the investment in time to apply. National recognition is a great boost for staff, volunteers and trustees.
- Julie Close, Southern Brooks Community Partnerships

The Locality Awards 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.

Where and when are the Locality Awards?

The Locality Awards will be held on Wednesday 17 November at 7pm during Locality Convention ’21 evening reception.
