The Liverpool Community Impact Awards

The Biennial Community Impact Awards

Nominations open soon, sign up for more details:

What are the awards?

The biennial community impact awards recognise inspiring people, organisations and groups. We want to recognise all fields and causes as well as a special award for mental health.

Nominations are made by the general public and will be interviewed and examined by a member of our awards team.

Following this, a judging panel will assess all nominations against certain criteria for each field. The awards ceremony will take place in the heart of Liverpool and organisations or individuals must have a postcode within the Merseyside region.

Our story

The Be Free Campaign has seen the impact that changemakers and innovators can have on the community. There is a need to recognise people who are making an impact - regardless of their background or area of interest.

There is no better place to start, than at the heart of Liverpool. Whilst the charity started in Birmingham, the Be Free Campaign saw its real growth in the rich culture of Liverpool. The inaugural awards will take place in Liverpool and are designed to ensure that people are recognised for their impact on their community.
