Send us your nominations by 18th August 2019!
It’s a great and easy way to give recognition and show your appreciation for the hard work and commitment of community volunteers.
The shortlisted nominees will be invited to an awards evening on 3rd October 2019 where their achievements will be celebrated and winners announced. Winners will then be invited as VIP guests to the Stockport Homes Staff Awards event on 29th November 2019.
