Say thank you to a neighbour by nominating them for NPH's Community Hero Awards!

Know a neighbour who is always there to help, or puts time into looking after the local community?

We're calling on neighbours and members of the community to nominate inspirational NPH Tenants and Leaseholders for our annual Community Hero Awards.


The Community Hero Awards brings together Council tenants from across Northampton who make a difference in their community. Last year’s awards, the first of its kind, recognised 12 people.

This included ‘Great Neighbour’ Maggie Kirton, a former care worker now retired, who puts on games afternoons and coffee mornings for residents at Eleonore House in Eastfield, and Rose Agar who runs two social groups for older people, the Dallington Diamonds and King Heath over 50s.


Know a hero near you?

You can nominate your Community Hero up until 28th February.

This is how to do it:

  • Nominate online or phone NPH on 01604 837836 to share your nomination.
  • Choose a category: Great Neighbour or Community Champion.
  • Tell NPH who your nomination is for and why.

All nominations received will be reviewed by an independent judge and recognised at an Awards Event on Thursday 11th April.

We might need to contact you back for more information on the nomination.

Nominations can only be accepted for Northampton Borough Council Tenants, Leaseholders and members of their household.
