North Lincolnshire Council welcomes nominations from those who have dedicated their time to volunteering, overcome barriers or excelled in a sport or the arts.

It also welcomes nominations from community groups for their work in the local community, and those that are a true inspiration to others.

The awards are spread over four categories: Volunteers; Achievement; Community; and Inspiration.
