Each year the Kent Housing Group hosts an annual Awards event, an opportunity to recognise and celebrate all that is ‘Excellent in Kent and Medway related to Housing’. This year, due to the pandemic KHG have had to take the decision to cancel the planned event for November 2020 and plan for something different in early 2021. In March 2021 KHG will host its first virtual Awards event it will be all about the Extraordinary!
The KHG Extraordinary Awards will be an opportunity for each KHG membership organisation to submit one nomination, where a person, project, team or even community member or group to be celebrated for being or doing the ‘extraordinary’.
Having one nomination per membership organisation means that all members of KHG can get involved. This can be used as the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary people who have continued to go above and beyond during the difficult last twelve months.
Covid-19 had been a significant part of our lives now since March 2020, and it will be inevitable that a nomination may feature the response to this life changing pandemic. However, we do not want to restrict any nomination and these awards are not just to celebrate those responding to the pandemic. We want to hear about all the other fantastic things your organisations are doing.
As each organisation will only be able to submit one, the nominations will not be subject to any scoring or judgement by the KHG Events Team. The difficult decision about your nomination will be taken by yourselves, internally.
To assist you with who and how to nominate KHG have produced a Guidance Note and also an nomination form. All nominations have to be submitted to the Partnership Manager by Friday 5th February 2021 and the virtual ceremony will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 24th March 2021, with more details about the ceremony to be shared in the New Year.
If you have any questions about this event or nominating please contact the KHG Partnership Manager Rebecca Smith.
