Who's your hero?

On Friday 9 March 2018 we held our 10th Making a Difference Awards, where we celebrated the community spirit, courage, enterprise and kindness of our residents throughout Wales.
As it is was the 10th Anniversary of the Awards, we introduced some brand new and special awards.

The Categories

Good Neighbour
This category celebrates the kindness of those special people whose small day to day actions make a big difference to the lives of their neighbours. From lending a helping hand or a listening ear, these warm hearted individuals go out of their way to help others who live near.

Going Green
This category recognises green fingered residents who have made a real difference to their environment. From growing beautiful floral displays to recycling and reusing goods in the garden, or even producing fruit and veg for others to enjoy, these residents lead the way when it comes to going green.

Wellbeing Champion (new for 2018)
This new category celebrates recognises the individuals or groups who set an example or encourage others to improve their physical or mental health and wellbeing.

Bridging the Gap (new for 2018)
This is another new category celebrating young and old people working together to make their community a better place, or to help others less fortunate than themselves. Their common aim is to learn from each other and bond as a team.

Fresh Start
Life can be full of ups and downs, so this award recognises those brave people who have made it through tough times and turned things around for the better. From overcoming illness, confronting personal issues or supporting their family through difficult times, to making their dreams a reality by getting back into employment, education or training, these extraordinary individuals set an example to us all.

Community Heroes
This award celebrates individuals or groups who have started something special in their WWH community to benefit those who live there. From running community groups, tackling local issues and raising money for charity - these selfless individuals dedicate their time and efforts to making a difference.

Special 10th Anniversary Award
This one-off award is for an individual or group who have been exceptionally outstanding in their efforts to make a difference.
