The Heart of the Community award is our way of encouraging people to say THANK YOU to a business which has made a significant contribution to the local area. 

The award recognises businesses which show that it is not just the cash flow of a business that counts; it is making a positive difference to the borough. 

The finalists will be businesses which have gone extra mile to be at the heart of the local community, and:

  • Support local initiatives and causes  
  • Employs local people
  • Provide excellent customer service

If you know a business which matches any or all of the above criteria, why don't you tell us why and nominate them now! 

Even if they aren't named in the final three, all businesses will receive a certificate of recognition. 

Judging Criteria

The Judging Panel will be the North Tyneside Business Forum Management Group who will consider how well applicants meet the stated criteria. The amount of nominations received for a business does not deem a business more suitable for the shortlist. The panel’s decision is final and will be based solely on information provided in the nomination form. 

Businesses from all sectors and sizes and Community Interest Companies (CIC) can be nominated however, registered charities and businesses which are funded by public sector organisations are not eligible. Previous finalists and winners can be nominated.
