THE STORY SO FAR…

Every day all of our lives are shaped by individuals doing great things – often behind the scenes, or away from the glare of publicity. People are the key to making our society and communities special places to live. So what could be better than to single some of them out for recognition with The British Citizens Award (BCA).

The Honours are a benchmark against which individuals will be able to measure their standing in the community; the respect with which they are held by others; and benefit from recognition for their endeavour.  All recipients will also be featured on The British Citizen Award Roll of Honour.

Each Nomination will be considered on its merits, and if further information is required, the nominator or nominee will be contacted to supply further information. The BCA Independent Assessment Panel will assess from the information contained in the submission and any other information available in the public domain, if the nomination is to be successful and ratify the decision to award the honour of a BCA.

There are eight individual categories, each having its own specific subject area, but all the BCAs are underpinned by the overarching qualities of transparency, integrity, determination and achievement.
