The nomination period for the 2018 Community Awards is now OPEN! Nomination forms, together with full guidelines and criteria for nominations are now available on our website www.communityawards.gg.

They may have done this – for example – by caring, by volunteering, by overcoming adversity, by raising awareness of a particular issue, or by organising an event that has improved Islanders’ quality of life. NB: A young person for the purpose of this award will be 11-25. All individuals within a group of young people must fit this age criteria. • Outstanding Individual Achievement – sponsored by PwC CI Awarded to a person who has demonstrated innovation, teamwork, passion and integrity throughout their involvement, and who has produced an identifiably profound effect on a charity or voluntary organisation through their work and/or leadership. • Fundraising Team of the Year – sponsored by Cazenove Capital Awarded to a locally based fundraising team on the basis of its innovation and results that achieve or exceed the aims of a campaign, or campaigns, during the previous 12 months. • Innovation Award – sponsored by Specsavers The Innovation Award recognises creative ways of working that will benefit the voluntary sector or our wider community.
