We hold our Community Awards awards once a year, but the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic means we will not be able to meet in person this time around.
However, that does not take anything away from the incredible achievements of those nominated for an award. During what has been a difficult year, those listed in this booklet have stepped up in so many ways to support their neighbours and be a part of their communities.
These awards are usually for customers and service users of The Barnet Group, but in recognition of those who have given so much over the last year, we have extended the awards to the wider Barnet community.
You’ll be able to see a virtual awards ceremony on our website and YouTube channel on Thursday 28 January.
Nominations for community awards have been submitted by residents and community partners who appreciate the contribution their fellow neighbours and friends make in their communities.
Our Your Choice Barnet (YCB) service users make great strides in their personal development and in the contributions they make, and it’s always an extremely difficult task to decide on the award winners – they are truly all deserving. We hope that these awards go some way towards recognising their progress and contributions.
This year, we have introduced special “Covid-19 Inspirational Person” awards, to celebrate those who have gone above and beyond since the beginning of the pandemic.
Congratulations to all our nominees – it is you who make the biggest contribution to the services we deliver.
Contractor Covid-19 Recovery Fund
2020 has been one of the most challenging years for individuals, families, communities and businesses across the globe. Trying to maintain a sense of normality has not been easy with many having to adapt to how they live and work. We have seen the community, our contractors and staff at The Barnet Group come together to support local people in Barnet who have lost their jobs, struggling financially, seen a rise in the need of food banks and child poverty amongst many any challenges.
With the invaluable support from our contractors, The Barnet Group is pleased to announce its Contractor Covid-19 Recovery Fund, which aims to support local groups throughout 2021. Further details on how groups can apply to the fund will be available of the Barnet Group website in the New Year
Thank you again for all your support, hard work and commitment, and everything you do in the Barnet community.
