This award will go to a friend or neighbour who have helped others living near them, whether it be running errands, looking after those living alone, or being a shoulder to cry on when times are tough.
As part of their line of duty, members of the emergency services are there to protect and serve the public. This award is for someone who has risked their own life to save another, going above and beyond their line of duty.
Have you made things happen in your neighbourhood? We want to hear from groups that have worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for people in their community. Whether you raised money for a new play area, organised a demonstration, campaigned for safer roads or supported youth groups.
We are searching for someone who is either looking
after a relative or friend, providing domiciliary care or is looking after an individual in a care home environment. We want you to help us find that one
person who goes above and beyond and puts the needs of other first.

There are thousands of terrific youngsters out there, but we're looking for a role model, aged 16 or under, who deserves special recognition.
