Flood Re searches for Local Heroes!

Do you know a Local Hero worthy of national recognition?

We are on the search to recognise individuals or community groups who have shown leadership and resilience around their flood relief efforts.

Do you know someone or a group who has been a pillar of strength for flood action in your area? Have they really made a difference on the ground? Through some of the toughest times of flooding, have they helped you out?
Perhaps your Local Hero rallied the troops in a time of need after being flooded, maybe they have been leading the way for better flood protection in your area or even offered you a home when yours was being repaired?

If this describes someone you know and you would like them to be celebrated for their fantastic support then put them forward for their chance to be crowned one of Flood Re’s Local Heroes and receive nationwide recognition. The winner will also be rewarded with £10,000 to benefit their local community.

To submit your nomination please fulfil the information required in the below form.

Entries will close on 18 September 2017 when nominations will be collected and the judging process will begin. The shortlisted nominees will be notified by 6 October 2017 and will be invited to a national awards ceremony.

Please see terms and conditions for more information.
