Mayor’s Award for volunteering

Read about the mayor's scheme to recognise volunteers in the borough.

The Mayor’s Award scheme was launched in 2017 to recognise people, community projects and businesses who volunteer in their spare time in Lewisham.

The Mayor’s Award recognises individuals, community projects and businesses who contribute or support others to volunteer their spare time to Lewisham.

If you know an unsung hero or group that is making Lewisham a better place to live, please take a few minutes to nominate them.

Mayor’s Award categories

There are four categories of award. These are:

  • individual/volunteer – for their outstanding contribution to local community life
  • organisation/business – for community engagement with the people of Lewisham
  • young person achievement award (for people aged 21 and under)
  • community group for their outstanding contribution to the community.

A judging panel will review all the nominations for the Mayor’s Award and decide the winners in November 2019.


Nominations for the Mayor’s Award 2019 are now closed.
