Together with Neighbourhood Watch we’re searching for the Neighbour of the Year 2019, to find the UK’s best neighbours.

Once again we’re looking for people to nominate their neighbours who go above and beyond to help their neighbourhood and surrounding community. This year’s awards categories are:

  • Neighbour of the Year 2019
  • Community Spaces Champion 2019
  • Neighbour of the Year 2019 (Regional prizes)

Our Community Spaces Champion award will celebrate someone who has shown commitment to either save, improve, or use a local space for the good of their neighbours or overall community.

How to nominate

Co-op Members can nominate now on Join In

A panel of judges from Co-op and Neighbourhood Watch will be deciding our winners, which will be announced in November. When nominating, keep in mind the traits of a good neighbour. Good neighbours are people who:

  • look out for each other
  • are sociable and friendly
  • practically helpful
  • kind, caring and respectful

The Community Spaces Champion Award will be judged on how people have used a space in their local area to make a difference. This will be things such as setting up a sports match for neighbours at a local park; creating a community garden; setting up a support group in a community; or even helping to save a space from being shut down.
