Community Achievement Awards 2024

In memory of Adiaha Antigha

Nominate now!

Do you know an organisation, team or individual in City and Hackney that deserves recognition? Then nominate them for a Community Achievement Award.

The awards are held in memory of Adiaha Antigha, the founder and former director of Hackney CVS, who made a huge contribution to the organisation’s success and to the sector as a whole. They are given each year to recognise the work and impact of Hackney’s voluntary and community sector (VCS).

To make a nomination please complete the online nomination form by 5pm on Friday 31 May.

The categories for 2024 are for:

  • Challenging discrimination and celebrating diversity.
  • Supporting collaborative working in the community.
  • Supporting people during the cost of living crisis and/or campaigning against poverty.
  • Community workers that matter and have made a difference in City and Hackney.
  • Contributing to a fairer society by reducing inequality in City and Hackney.

After nominations have been made, we move on to the voting stage. The nomination in each category that receives the most votes from the sector wins the award. Winners will be presented with a certificate and an engraved glass award at the community awards evening on Tuesday 16 July.
