Nominations for local Community Awards are open

Posted in: Foundation

The OneFamily Community Awards are open for nominations and OneFamily is urging its customers across the UK to enter local good causes and community projects and give them the chance to win up to £25,000.

The OneFamily Community Awards offer the opportunity to win a significant financial grant to support a special project or initiative that will benefit the good cause and its members.

There are four different categories: health; disability and social care; lifelong learning; active living; and community groups. Each category will have eight winners with four projects receiving up to £5,000, three projects winning up to £10,000 and one project scooping £25,000.

The Community Awards are one way that OneFamily gives something extra back to its customers and is part of the OneFamily Foundation which was created to give customers the opportunity to support their local community and the good causes in their local area that matter to them and their families.

Karl Elliott, Customer Strategy director at OneFamily, said:

“The awards are open and we’re urging our customers across the country to get involved and nominate a good cause that could benefit from a financial grant.

“As we are owned by our customers we want to do more than just provide great products, we want to help our customers, their families and the communities where they live in other ways, and our OneFamily Foundation enables us to do just that.

“The Community Awards are a big part of the Foundation’s work, and each year we give hundreds of thousands of pounds to projects close to our customers’ hearts. In 2016, we touched the lives of more than 100,000 people through the awards, and this year we want to help even more – giving more people and communities the chance to get involved.

“Projects must be nominated to be in with a chance of winning, so I want to encourage OneFamily customers to get involved and nominate the good causes that mean the most to them.”

The Community Awards open for entries Wednesday 21 June and close on Wednesday 19 July at midday.
