Who's your hero?
All over Manchester there are individuals, groups and voluntary organisations who are bringing their neighbourhoods together and making a big difference to community life.
Young and old are working together - indoors and outdoors - on local projects, large and small. They're continuing week in week out, providing vital support, giving their time, giving their skills or just their energy. Their projects are taking shape, growing, making real improvements and inspiring others to get involved too.
Neighbours are supporting each other, young people are helping to shape communities, individuals and groups are creating change.
Who makes a difference in your community?
Nominate the stars in your neighbourhood.
Deadline for applications now extended to Friday 9 October!
There are ten categories to choose from, select the category that best suits your hero's achievements.
