Who is your local hero?
If there is someone who really makes a difference in your community, then here’s an opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve.
This year BBC Radio Merseyside wants to celebrate and say thank you to people across Merseyside who make where we live a better place.
Every day we hear stories of people doing incredible things for each other and their communities.
Now it’s time to recognise them for all their hard work with the BBC Radio Merseyside Make A Difference Awards.
Whether it’s caring for someone in need, being a brilliant neighbour, or inspiring children in the classroom, if you know someone who is really making a difference, you can nominate them for an award.
There are eight categories:
- Community Group
- Great Neighbour
- Key Worker
- Together award
You can nominate someone you know at bbc.co.uk/makeadifference where you can also see full Terms and Conditions.
Nominations are now open and will close on 29 April at 11pm.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in September at the Palm House in Sefton Park.
