Nominate a special someone who makes Hammersmith & Fulham a better and happier place to live in.

Whether they’re volunteering to support neighbours through the cost-of-living crisis or they’ve volunteered for years working across our borough, each year we honour local residents who make Hammersmith & Fulham a stronger, safer, kinder place with a Civic Honour. There are three categories which relate to contributions in a neighbourhood, across the borough, or over a lifetime. Read all about last year’s Civic Honours winners.

“The Civic Honours are your chance to recognise and thank people who give their time to make others’ lives better,” said H&F Leader, Cllr Stephen Cowan.

“We’re doing our best to make H&F a stronger, safer, kinder borough and understand how important the exceptional people are who volunteer to make a positive difference in our civic life. So please tell us who you know goes above and beyond.”

Nominate now

The closing date for nominations is Friday 17 February.
