High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Awards 2020

Application deadline: 25 October 2019. Outcome known late November 2019

Awards for groups involved in building stronger communities, integration, social justice and/or youth crime prevention.

The annual High Sheriff Awards provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate some of the fantastic individuals and voluntary organisations who are helping to make our county better.

This year, in addition to the traditional social justice and crime prevention themes, the awards will also reflect the current High Sheriff’s interest in promoting stronger communities.
Throughout her year as High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Sarah Beazley is focusing on honouring organisations that are working to build stronger communities, promote integration, or work across faiths.

The High Sheriff Awards event will recognise and celebrate groups working across the following themes:
· Building stronger communities
· Integration - projects that bring together different groups of people or that aim to help disadvantaged people integrate into wider society
· Community projects run by faith groups
· Social Justice - in particular groups working to address addiction, domestic violence, and poor mental health
· Youth related crime prevention

The deadline for receiving nominations is 5pm on Friday 25th October 2019 after which they are being considered by the High Sheriff’s panel. Winners will be announced at the High Sheriff Awards evening on 12th March 2020
