Safer Bromley Partnership Awards

Safer Bromley annual awards ceremony

In March 2014 the Safer Bromley partnership is holding its 8th annual awards evening.  We are keen to give recognition to those individuals and organisations that have made a significant contribution in making Bromley a safer place to live, work and visit over the last year. In previous years it has been a great privilege to recognise and reward the valuable contribution made by a broad range of residents, employees and volunteers.

What makes a winner 

We are looking for nominees who reflect the hard work and dedication taking place in our community. Those who strive to improve the safety of our residents and promote a positive environment within the borough. This can be an individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty in their job to make Bromley safer, or a person who dedicates their free time to volunteer in the interests of community safety.

Similarly, we are also looking for a young person who demonstrates these qualities in their local community or borough wide.

If there is someone who you think deserves particular recognition for their work or achievements, someone you work alongside or someone who has made a real difference to safety within the borough; this is your chance to show them that they are valued.

Award categories

  • Community Champions  - a member of the community who should be recognised for specific effort in making their local area safer.
  • Working Together - a person or organisation that has shown an example to others in how partnership working provides more effective change to community safety issues
  • Youth Champion - a young person (under 19 yrs) who has made an outstanding contribution to making their community a safe and positive environment.

Make a nomination

Nominations closed on 12 February 2014

You can nominate more than one person; however you cannot nominate the same nominee in different categories.

Awards Criteria

What are the eligibility criteria

The basic criterion for all of our awards is largely similar: the group or individual nominated must be contributing in either their voluntary efforts or their career to enhance and maintain the safety of the Bromley community. They can be friends, family, or somebody in the community who you feel is particularly deserving. This can be on a local or a borough wide scale and the nominations are open to all ages (except for the Youth Champion Award which is aimed at under 19).Groups are considered to be organisations of more than 2 individuals.

What are the judges looking for 

Individuals or groups who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in their voluntary duties to ensure the safety of Bromley, or;

Individuals or groups who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their job to contribute to the safety of the community.

Please do not send in examples of the nominee’s work (e.g. videos, photographs, books) as we cannot take responsibility for their safekeeping.

Timings for nominations

It is normal for awards to be made to people who are still active in the area(s) to which the nomination relates, although there is no bar on an award being made to someone who has retired within the last 12 months.

Nominations close on 12 February 2014.

Other Awards?

The nomination forms do ask whether or not your nominee has received or is in line to receive recognition from any other awarding body as the ethos for our ceremony is to recognise the unsung heroes within our community. However, we do not reject nominations on this basis and will still be happy to receive nominations for those who have been commended elsewhere.
