Brighton Community Awards To Be Held in National Volunteer Week

by Brighton Council

In August last year Council decided to change the Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards to become the Brighton Council Community Awards, to be held during National Volunteer Week in May of each year. These awards will replace the Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards that were previously held in January to focus on our local community heroes and volunteers during volunteer week.

The new awards will become part of a week-long celebration of local volunteers, living here in the Brighton Municipality.

The National Volunteer Week celebrations will include the launch of Brighton Council’s Safeguarding Volunteering Strategy that has been co-created with local volunteers, a series of stories featuring some of our unsung heroes who volunteer in our community talking about why they do what they do plus Brighton Alive will sponsor a Jeder Institute two day workshop on the practice of Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) for members of our community and last but not least the Brighton Community Awards Ceremony, which will be held as a Civic Reception hosted by the Mayor on Thursday 23 May from 10am-12pm to announce the winners.

Nominations for the Brighton Community Awards will be open Friday 1 March 2024. Brighton Council invites nominations from residents of the municipality.

The award categories will be as follows:

  • Citizen (Volunteer) of the Year Award
  • Young Citizen (Volunteer) Award (up to 25 years of age at 31 May, 2024)
  • Community Initiative/Event of the Year Award

A complete description of the contributions made by the nominee/events organisers is essential. Individual nominees must include their name, address, and date of birth. Nominations close on Wednesday 1 May 2024 and may be lodged online at www.brighton.tas.gov.au/community, sent to Kylie at admin@brighton.tas.gov.au or posted to Kylie at Brighton Council Offices, 1 Tivoli Rd, Old Beach TAS 7017
