Entries open for new competition to celebrate Lambeth’s ‘unsung heroes’

A new awards programme has launched in Lambeth to celebrate the borough’s “unsung heroes” for their contributions to the area’s vibrant community.

The BeLambeth Awards, organised by marketing agency White Label Creative, on behalf of Lambeth council, is now open for entries.

Spanning from the South Bank and Lambeth to Vauxhall, Brixton, Clapham and Streatham, the competition is open to everyone in the borough, from innovative start-ups to established enterprises and individuals of all backgrounds and ages.

A spokeswoman from White Label Creative said: “In the heart of London, Lambeth’s vibrant community has always been a tapestry of cultures, aspirations and talents. 

“These awards celebrate the unsung heroes, the innovative thinkers, the brilliant employers and the tireless volunteers who weave the very fabric of Lambeth. They remind us that our community is not just a place to live but a family to belong to.”

Free to apply, businesses and residents have until May 31, to submit up to three entries across 10 categories. Applicants can also nominate an organisation or individual for an award.

Categories include Educational Institution of the Year, Commitment to Employee Training and Development, Inspirational STEM Employer, Creative and Digital Industries Award, Employer of the Year, Inclusive Employer of the Year, Sustainable Impact Award, Rising Star Award, Enterprising Young Person of the Year and Apprentice of the Year.

Throughout the categories the judges will be looking for schools with innovative teaching methods and community engagement, employers who foster an inclusive and supportive work environment, individuals and businesses contributing to local or global climate action initiatives as well as young, successful entrepreneurs and apprentices.

Through the awards, winners will gain recognition and support to platform their businesses.

Finalists will be announced on June 19, and the winners will be revealed at a special awards ceremony and networking evening in September.

Bayo Dosunmu, chief executive of Lambeth council, said: “Following the success of our Lambeth Civic Awards earlier in the year, the Be Lambeth Awards will showcase our talented residents and celebrate businesses in the borough that are providing career opportunities including in our growth sectors.

“The Awards will also provide an opportunity to recognise the organisations providing exceptional skills and employment support to local people​.

“The BeLambeth Awards play a significant role in fostering this sense of togetherness, recognising the power of collective effort and fuelling the spirit of excellence that defines Lambeth. I am immensely proud of what our community and businesses have achieved, and I look forward to another year of celebrating the brilliance that is uniquely Lambeth.”

The event is sponsored by Clapham Park, CLS Holdings, and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Additional support comes from APCOA
PARKING UK, Bouygues UK, Breyer Group, NRT Building Services Group, and Willmott Dixon.
