A social housing provider has launched a search for community heroes.

Salford-based Salix Homes is appealing for nominations for its sixth annual Salix Stars Awards which recognise the unsung champions living in our communities.

If you know someone who has gone the extra mile in their neighbourhood, made a real difference to the area where they live, always puts others first or has shown exceptional bravery then why not nominate them for a Salix Star?

The six categories at this year’s awards are Good Neighbour Star, Young Rising Star, Best Green Initiative Star, Best Community Project Star, Outstanding Achievement Star and Creativity Star.

The awards are open to any Salix Homes’ customer including tenants, leaseholders or homeowners living in a Salix Homes’ neighbourhood.

Joe Willis, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: “The Salix Stars Awards are a brilliant way of recognising some of the amazing work our residents do in the community.

“The number of nominations we receive grows each year and we are always humbled to hear of the wonderful work that goes on in our communities by these unsung heroes.

“If you know someone who has made a real difference in your community then I urge you to nominate them.”

The Salix Homes’ customer panels will judge the nominations, selecting five finalists for each category who will be invited to attend a glittering awards ceremony at the Imperial War Museum, Salford Quays, on Friday, September 27.

The sponsors for this year’s event include Emanuel Whittaker, Seddon Construction, AON, Procure Plus, Morrison Meers, Forrest and Beevers and Struthers.

To nominate someone call Jackie Crook on 0161 779 8966 or email  The deadline for nominations is Friday, July 12.
