Latest news,

This year BBC Radio Somerset wants to celebrate and say thank you to people living in our villages, towns and cities who make where we live a better place.

Every day we hear stories of people doing incredible things for each other and their communities. Now it’s time to recognise them for all their hard work.

This is a chance to highlight someone who has really made a difference working or volunteering in the social care sector.

Whether it’s caring for someone in need, being a brilliant neighbour, or inspiring children in the classroom, if you know someone who is really making a difference to our lives then you can nominate them for an Award.

There are 8 categories;

  • Volunteer
  • Community Group
  • Fundraiser
  • Carer
  • Great Neighbour
  • Key Worker
  • Environment
  • Together award

You can nominate someone you know at, where you can also see full Terms and our Privacy Notice. Nominations are now open and will close on the 29th of April 2022 at 11:00pm.

The winners will be announced at our Make a Difference awards ceremony in September at the home of Somerset Cricket at the County Ground on the evening of Friday 16th September.
