Croydon Mayor’s Civic Awards

Community heroes in our borough are set to be honoured in the 2017 Mayor of Croydon’s Civic Awards, created to recognise the commitment, energy and goodwill of volunteers, community groups, local partners and businesses who help to make Croydon a brilliant place for people to live, visit, work and grow.

It could be someone who helps to keep Croydon green and clean, a local business partnership which helps young people into work or just someone who is making a difference – do you know a young person who has against the odds transformed their own lives and now helps others to help themselves?

For information, go to Have a look, and nominate a community hero!

Nominating is easy – you can do it online or complete the nomination form below and email it to Need help completing a nomination? Just email or call 0208 604 7042. Nominations must be in by 8th September 2017.
