Nominate your democracy hero!

Nominate your democracy hero!

April 10, 2018

As part of the National Democracy Week Council, we launched the first-ever Democracy Awards in Parliament on Thursday 21 March. The ceremony will take place as part of the brand new National Democracy Week (2-6 July 2018).


The awards will recognise the individuals and organisations across the UK that are working hard to engage people in our democracy.


Their work, particularly with under represented groups, 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, we want to acknowledge the outstanding contributions that so 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; and

  • Collaboration of the Year Award.


You can find out more about the awards and how to enter on the National Democracy Week Website.
