Nominations open for the first-ever National Democracy Week Awards
The Cabinet Office launched the first-ever Democracy Awards in Parliament on Thursday 21 March. The ceremony took place as part of the brand new National Democracy Week (2-6 July).
The awards will recognise the individuals and organisations across the UK that are working hard to engage people in our democracy. Their work has the potential to help people understand their democratic rights and make their voices heard. This service is not always recognised. But as part of this summer’s festival of democracy, the awards will highlight the outstanding contributions many have made.
National nominations will be divided into four categories:
- Young Advocate of the Year Award
- Diversity Champion of the Year Award
- Changemaker of the Year Award
- Collaboration of the Year Award
You can find out more about the awards and how to enter on the National Democracy Week Website. The deadline for nominations is 27th May 2018.
