  Getting started

Before you do anything you’ll need to register to the OneFamily Foundation. Once you've registered you'll need to verify yourself as a customer. You can do this by visiting your dashboard and entering your OneFamily policy number and postcode. You can find your policy number on any of your OneFamily documents or by calling our customer services team on 0800 373 010.

Download this guide and share with the rest of your team and start planning the perfect nomination.

Nominations open from midday on 21st June until midday on 19th July 2017.

  Nominate

 

Choose a category and funding level amount that best suits your project and be ready to provide information about your project, including timescales and costs.

Once you submit your nomination, a member of the OneFamily Foundation team will review your project and may come back with some questions. When the team agree the information you’ve provided meets the eligibility criteria your project status will be changed to ‘Approved’ and will enter the public vote.

Top tip: If your nomination is approved, some of the information you've supplied in your nomination form will be used on your dedicated project page on our website. So it's important to add as much detail as you can here.

  Vote

Now you’re through to the most important stage of the Community Awards, the public vote.

Anyone over the age of 18 and a UK resident can vote – even if they aren’t a OneFamily customer.

The voting phase opens at midday on Wednesday 9th August and closes at midday on Wednesday 6th September. After this point, all of the votes will be counted and verified and we’ll be in touch to let you know if your project has been successful or not.

Good luck!
