To nominate an individual, a community group or business who you think deserves to be recognised, send an email requesting an application form to
In support of the campaign, the Council is also encouraging residents to place “RCT Hearts You” signs in their windows to show their appreciation for the help they have or are continuing to receive from frontline heroes, community organisations, businesses, or neighbours, family and friends.
