General criteria for all awards

  2. Church or parish groups are welcome to be nominated unless the category specifies that it is for a charity or company.
  3. A charity; voluntary, church or community group; individual; or company should have made a significant impact that can be measured and demonstrated.
  4. In all other cases the nominator will interpret the stated criteria for each award and explain to the Judges why they believe the nominee fits the description, and it will be for the Judges to decide who deserves the award. Providing detailed information makes selection easier for the Judging Panel.

  6. The Judges retain the right to ask any formally constituted organisation for information on its governance arrangements, particularly with regard to child and/or adult safeguarding where relevant. Nominations will not be considered if relevant information is not submitted upon requested.
