Newham Civic Awards

Awards banner

The Newham Civic Awards recognise, celebrate and reward exceptional individuals, entrepreneurs, groups, organisations and companies who contribute to making our borough unique.

Nominated by those who live, work or learn in Newham, the recipients are local champions from all walks of life, of all ages from across the borough.

Since the introduction of the Newham Civic Awards in 2022, we’ve put local people at the heart of the awards process. Our recipients are chosen from hundreds of nominations and stories of inspiring individuals, organisations and groups who are making positive changes and contributions to our community. These nominees are whittled down to a shortlist from which our Newham Civic Awards Panel, made up of local people, representatives of local organisations and local councillors make recommendations to the council.

They are honoured at a formal Newham Civic Awards ceremony at Stratford Old Town Hall, with the Mayor of Newham and Chief Executive of the council in attendance.
