LGiU and CCLA’s Cllr Achievement Awards are the only awards celebrating the important work of councillors and the highlight of the year for elected members across England!
About the Awards
The awards will take place on Tuesday, 5th November at the Royal Horseguards Hotel in Westminster and are a uniquely important way of celebrating the fantastic work that local councillors do for their community. Now in its tenth year, LGiU’s Cllr Achievement Awards brings together the brightest and best councillors from across the country, as well as council leaders, other senior local government figures and MPs, for an evening of celebration and networking.
We promote nominations from June through to September, gathering entries from councillor colleagues, local MPs and residents. The shortlist will be announced in October, following which the judging panel will convene to decide the winners. The winners will be announced on the night by LGiU Chief Executive Jonathan Carr-West.
Anyone can nominate a councillor; there are eight categories for which you can nominate your local councillor:
- Community Champion
- Finance and Economic Development
- Leader of the Year
- Environment and Sustainability Pioneer
- Innovation and Service Transformation
- Young Councillor
- Lifetime Achievement Award
This year’s awards are possible thanks to the generous support of our founding sponsors CCLA, who are partnering with us for the 10th year in a row.
CCLA is a leading specialist fund manager for local authorities and charities. When they began sponsoring the Cllr Achievement Awards they had 22 local authority accounts. Today they have over 400 and this number is growing every month. They are owned by their clients – their mission is to serve the whole sector, regardless of size.
The winner in each category will be chosen by our esteemed judging panel, comprised of senior councillors and officers as well as external stakeholders, and the winners will be announced at the awards event on 5th November.
Nominations will close at midnight on Friday, 6th September.
