2018 saw the launch of the very first Locality Awards, held at the Locality Convention '18 reception. They were created to celebrate the most dedicated and inspiring people and organisations in the Locality network.
Taking the time to reflect on achievements is something we often don't make the time for. Winning the Award has helped us recruit new trustees.
