Each year, Sutton Community Awards recognise remarkable individuals and groups across Sutton. The awards honour the passion, resilience, and commitment displayed by individuals and groups who go above and beyond to make a difference within their communities.

All the partners for the awards - Sutton Council, Community Action Sutton, Sutton Housing Partnership and Volunteer Centre Sutton and our sponsor Everyone Active - have been incredibly impressed with the great examples of community spirit and cohesion. 

We received a record number of nominations this year and the entries were of a very high standard. Thank you to everyone who put forward individuals or groups recognising the outstanding contributions in helping to make our borough a great place to live, work and raise a family.
