Stockport Homes is asking residents to nominate their shining stars for its virtual customer STAR awards 2020.
If you know someone who deserves recognition for all their efforts in supporting others in their local community, you could reward them by nominating them for a STAR award. The winners will receive STAR Trophies and Amazon vouchers. Voucher value for an individual award is £100 and £150 for a group award.
Individual customers or community groups can be nominated in the following five categories:
- Best Newcomer Group Award (Group formed due to Covid-19)
Maybe you have a new group that has started in your area? Tell us about any new groups, maybe for parents or older people – a group that has brought you together to share stories, and support. We would like to hear about groups that are going to continue, with a new sense of community.
- Best Neighbour Award (Individual)
Tell us about a neighbour that has been a massive support to you, or to the wider community. This could be anything from helping with shopping to making sure your street or block had a community focus. Tell us about your star neighbour and let them know how much they have been appreciated.
- Best Volunteer Award (Individual)
Stockport has seen lots of people volunteering to support their community – working with organisations and charities to make sure services have been delivered. Tell us about someone who has risen to the challenge and has made a difference.
- Best Online Group Award (Group)
Facebook or WhatsApp groups kept you going? Virtual groups need to be recognised for supporting the community, sharing news and information and making sure that everyone can be included. Tell us about a group you have organised or been a part of and why it made a difference.
- Best Young Person Award (Individual under 25yrs)
We would love to hear about a young person in the community that has really been supportive, this could be through helping neighbours, doing gardening for people or supporting other young people online.
All nominations should be for a Stockport Homes customer or customer group and / or be of benefit to Stockport Homes’ communities.
The nominations deadline is now closed. Thank you for everyone who voted! We will update on the voting process and results on our website and social media channels.
Please give as much detail as possible to assist the judging panel. Remember the judging panel do not know the nominees and will need some background information.
Ensure you talk about what activity they are involved in, and be specific with your examples of what they have done and achieved. We recommend a word count of at least 100 words for each question to ensure you give enough detail.
Please note - If you know somebody with no access to internet, they can phone 0161 218 1091 and our Customer Engagement and Inclusion Team is able to help to fill in the form for them.
The deadline for nominations is midnight on Sunday 23 August 2020.
Jenny Osbourne, Chair of the Stockport Homes’ Board said,
Especially now, it’s important to recognise and celebrate our many customers making a positive contribution within the community. We have a special award this year with our Covid-19 champions in the Best Newcomer category. Without all the wonderful customers and volunteers working together with us, we couldn’t have delivered our services as effectively and safely as we have done in the last few months.
