Shine a Light on your Community Champions

What it's all about?
There are so many unsung heroes in the West Midlands who work so hard in bringing people together to form meaningful and long-lasting relationships and ultimately, friendships. 

The Mayor and Faith Action Plan bring out the need to recognise people who are taking leadership in their local communities. The Mayor is also keen to celebrate the outstanding men and women in the West Midlands who spend every day trying to make other people’s lives better, not thinking of monetary gain or fame.

The six award categories are designed to draw out and shine a light on the wide-ranging community work in the West Midlands, celebrate our faith communities and third sector and bring forward people-based solutions to deep social issues.

They are:

  • Inter-faith
  • Intergenerational 
  • Cross-regional 
  • Lifetime achievement 
  • Social mobility 
  • Mentoring
