It's time to celebrate the shining stars of Suffolk's communities
Suffolk Community Awards nominations NOW OPEN!

      Nominations open 13th May

      The search for Suffolk's most inspirational individuals, groups, councils and communities, has officially launched today.

      The Suffolk Community Awards 2024 will recognise and celebrate all those who have improved the quality of life for a community in Suffolk. 

      It is a partnership approach, delivered by Community Action Suffolk, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Association of Local Councils.

      This year will be bigger than ever with 17 awards now up for grabs. Categories ranging from youth participation and young person of the year to community building, contribution to volunteering, most active communities and council, councillor, young councillor and clerk of the year.

        Nominations for any of the categories must be made by the awards website, link above and should be submitted no later than Sunday 14th July. The prestigious award ceremony will be held for all selected winners, at the Museum of Food in Stowmarket. This takes place on Tuesday 24th September and will be hosted by former BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast presenter, Mark Murphy MBE. 

        These awards are special for so many reasons not least because they highlight the diversity of support offered to our local communities, from dedicated volunteers to large community organisations and town and parish councils all playing a very important part in making Suffolk a great place to live and work.

        An impressive 162 nominations were carefully considered by a panel of judges last year, this year we want to give our judges even more work to do, so please do get those nominations rolling in.
