Fareham Borough Council launch COVID Heroes Awards

Fareham Borough Council has launched a special recognition scheme today, dedicated to the organisations and individuals of all ages who have worked tirelessly to support those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID Heroes Awards have been created in recognition of the exceptional circumstances that have presented themselves during the last year and the people who have become a lifeline to others in these unprecedented times. They will take the place of the Council’s annual ‘Citizen and Young Citizen of Honour Awards’ for one year only.

There are three categories for the COVID Heroes Awards: 

  1. Adults (over 18). In recognition of outstanding service to the community or contribution to helping the lives of others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  2. Young People (under 18). In recognition of outstanding personal achievements or becoming a role model to family, friends or the community.
  3. Organisations. In recognition of outstanding community service during the COVID-19 pandemic and going above and beyond to help the Fareham community.

Members of the public are encouraged to nominate friends, neighbours or family members who have provided help and support to make others’ lives easier during lockdown. You can also nominate a business which has helped local people through non-profit activity.

All nominees for the COVID Heroes Awards will receive a special certificate of thanks from the Mayor and the Leader of the Council. Up to five overall winners from each category will be invited to a special celebration event hosted by the council and presented with their award. *

Nominations close on 30 June and more information can be found at


Notes to Editor:

*Subject to existing COVID-19 guidance.
