Citizen of Honour Award Scheme - Special Group Achievement Category

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

This report seeks approval to introduce a Special Group Achievement Category to the Citizen of Honour award scheme that will recognise outstanding contributions to improving the lives of residents made by community groups and charitable organisations.  It then proposes that One Community become the first recipient of the award.

 

The Citizen of Honour award scheme was introduced in 1996 to recognise notable voluntary and unpaid service provided to the community by Borough residents,

 

It was first modified in 2001 to include young citizens who had acted bravely, undertook regular selfless acts or were adapting to a disability.

 

The special achievement category was then introduced in 2009 to recognise residents who had made a notable and significant achievement in their field.

 

It is proposed that a new category, called the Special Group Achievement award be introduced.  This would be an occasional award presented to community groups, voluntary organisations and charities that have made outstanding contributions to people living in the Borough.

 

It is suggested that One Community be made the first recipient of the new award, in recognition of its outstanding contribution to local community and voluntary groups and organisations in the Borough.

Decision:

RESOLVED that the Executive approves:

 

(a)  the creation of the Special Group Achievement Award to recognise community groups, voluntary organisations and charities that have made outstanding contributions to the lives of residents;

 

(b)  the proposed arrangements for deciding and granting the Special Group Achievement Award, as set out in the report from paragraph 5; and

 

(c)  that the first Special Group Achievement Award be presented to One Community.
