BBC Make a Difference Awards

Local BBC Radio stations across England want to acknowledge, commend and applaud volunteers, carers, great neighbours, key workers and community groups with the ‘Make a Difference Awards’.

Unsung community heroes who make a difference where they live will be recognised in a new award scheme being run by every local BBC radio station in England. But they need your help to identify people who should be honoured!

The BBC’s Make a Difference Awards will give credit and thanks to remarkable people, marking their achievements and contributions to lives in their communities.

There are eight award categories (listed below) and nominations are open now until the 29th of April 2022 at 11:00pm.

Visit BBC Make a Difference Awards to make a nomination and to see full terms.

The winners will be announced at a Make a Difference Awards ceremony hosted by BBC Radio Surrey in September.
