Platform Community Heroes

platform community heroes logoDo you know a Platform Community Hero who deserves recognition?

We'd like Platform customers to nominate individuals and groups who have had a positive impact on their community.


Do all nominees have to be Platform customers?

Usually, yes, but we will also consider nominations for people who volunteer for Platform who are not customers or for groups that include Platform customers but whose members are not all Platform customers, as long as what they do benefits people in our communities.


Do I need to check the person’s happy to be nominated before I nominate them?

Yes please. We want to share people’s stories but only if people are happy for their stories to be shared.


What will happen if Platform decides that they do want to recognise the person or group I nominate?

We’ll let you know and we’ll contact the person or group. We’ll arrange with them to share their story and image on social media. A panel of judges chooses shortlists and winners for the Awards. Winners receive a trophy and voucher.
