About the Award
We all have a story about someone who gets off their backside and achieves something positive for the cause they care about. These are the people or organisations that have a clear vision for change. They engage and involve others to bring about real and concrete results that can be seen and felt on a daily basis. An everyday impact could be made by a person who devises a recreation scheme for communities around the country or their local area for sports or arts over a long period of time (more than five years).
