Suffolk Community Awards

In a unique partnership, Community Action Suffolk (‘CAS’), Suffolk County Council and the Suffolk Association of Local Councils (‘SALC’) launched the Suffolk Community Awards.

These collaborative awards celebrate and recognise the huge contribution that groups, individuals, town and parish councils make on the overall quality of life in our communities across the length and breadth of Suffolk.

Previously the three organisations ran separate events – namely the CAS Awards, the SALC Village of the Year competition, newsletter and website of the year awards and, Suffolk County Council’s Most Active Community Awards (run in partnership with SALC).

There are 15 awards available ranging from youth participation and young person of the year to community building, contribution to volunteering, most active communities and village and town of the year. CAS is also delighted to announce a new award for 2019, the  ‘Suffolk Good Neighbour Award’ – sponsored by Suffolk Community Foundation.

“Our Village of the Year Competition has not run for a few years and needed a review. Having attended the 2018 CAS Awards I instantly recognised there was potential to bring things together and focus on showcasing some of the fantastic outcomes that are being achieved. I am especially excited about putting the spotlight on the work of town and parish councils and the important contribution they make.”

“The CAS awards celebrate and recognise those ‘who go the extra mile’ and make positive contributions to their community.  We are delighted this year to be joining with SALC and Most Active County to bring all these awards together in one evening recognising many unsung heroes in Suffolk.”

Christine Abraham

Chief Executive , Community Action Suffolk

As we continue to work towards our goal of becoming the most active county in England, this is a great opportunity to pay tribute not only to groups and individuals that make things happen but to showcase ideas and projects that can make a real difference
