Who are the heroes of your community?

This is your opportunity to nominate someone who has done amazing things for their community in our Community Hero competition.

We want to take some time to recognise the hard work and dedication that they give to us each and everyday as well as offering them fully funded support to turn their ethical passion into a paycheque – whether that be from becoming self employed, creating a community group or establishing a business!

By nominating this hero, you are giving them the chance to join our Passion to Paycheque Cohort and win some amazing prizes!


These SUPER local companies around the North East know what it means to be a community hero. That’s why they’ve donated the following prizes. Take a look at what you can win!
