Nominate Camden groups for their Covid-19 response efforts

Camden Council is encouraging residents to nominate groups of people in their community or local organisations who have helped and continue to help during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Throughout these challenging times, so many organisations and groups in Camden have stepped up to support their communities and make sure that no one gets left behind. Some have delivered food parcels or cooked hot meals for families self-isolating or in need. Some have set up online activities to help keep residents connected in isolation. Some have looked out for older and vulnerable neighbours and others have helped homeless people.

On the frontline our NHS heroes and key workers have repeatedly put themselves in higher risk situations to help others. Other important contributions have been less publicised: the young carers looking after parents, for instance, or volunteers who have helped keep shared garden areas tidy and accessible for everyone to enjoy. Every contribution has made a real difference.

To recognise these incredible contributions, we are now asking residents to nominate a Camden-based group of people or organisation to be featured as part of our ‘We make Camden campaign’ recognition. We want a range of contributions that showcase Camden’s wonderful diversity and its proactive, community-led response to Covid-19. Your nomination could be for:

  • A Camden charity or voluntary group
  • A Camden business helping the community
  • A group of residents who have come together to help others out
  • Young people or a school who have taken on a project
  • A team within the NHS, Camden Council or other public service.
  • Plus many more besides!

To make your nomination, email [email protected] listing the name of the organisation or group, and why you have nominated them. 

Over the spring and summer, we will get in touch directly with your nominee to thank them. This will include speaking to them about their experiences, and potentially featuring their story and achievements locally, including in newspapers, and on the Council’s website and social media.
