Nominations for your Community Heroes have now closed
Thank you to the hundreds of people who have taken part and named the local people and organisations you think should be honoured.
The One Hounslow Community Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 6th October at Hounslow House for shortlisted nominees and invited guests.
You will be able to see the show LIVE online from 6.30pm onwards on Wednesday 6 October and celebrate Hounslow’s amazing residents, community groups and businesses.
There are nine different awards to be presented, and our judging panels are hard at work right now deciding who the winners might be.
But the overall winner of the ‘One Hounslow Spirit’ Award will be chosen on the night by our communities themselves, from the nine winners...
You will also be able to cast your vote on the evening. Further details to be posted soon.
Nominations closed on Monday 20 September.

The ‘One Hounslow’ approach underpins how Hounslow Council is transforming how it delivers services and support, creates opportunities, and works with communities, public sector partners and local businesses. At its heart is partnership working, and a spirit of compassion, innovation, empowering people and knocking down barriers to get things done.
One Hounslow underpins the Council’s Borough Plan for Recovery, published last October, and its new Corporate Plan, published in March, which sets out how, in partnership, we will create a fairer, greener, stronger borough for all.
