Derbyshire Beacon of Hope nominations

The Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Awards look to identify and to express thanks to groups or individuals who have worked tirelessly to keep our communities safe, and our businesses moving during the global COVID-19 crisis:

  • You can nominate either a person or an organisation who has given service or worked in Derby or Derbyshire in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
  • Individuals and organisations cannot nominate themselves. Nominations must be made by somebody else or by somebody outside the organisation.
  • They should have performed above and beyond their normal role.

The closing date for nominations is 14 May 2021.

For more information, please visit our Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Awards page.

Privacy notice

By providing your own personal data as well as the personal data of people you wish to nominate for an award, you consent to being contacted by a member of the Democratic Services team to gain further information or to inform you of the outcome of your nomination. Additionally you are confirming that you believe the nominated party will be accepting of the Council's contact using the personal information you have provided. We will use the personal data to inform the nominee, generally by email of their award if successful and arrange delivery of the certificate and award to their home address.

We may share your information with the following third parties:

  • Other council departments involved in facilitating the awards
  • The public via The Council's published webpages and corporate social media channels.
  • Derbyshire County Council, the Office of the High Sheriff of Derbyshire and Office of the Lord-Lieutenant of Derbyshire working in partnership with Derby City Council to facilitate the programme.

Information shared with Derbyshire County Council will include personal details of nominees who live outside of the Derby City boundary as they will process these nominations. Information will be shared via secure email and documents will be password protected. Once they have the information they will use it in the same way as Democratic Services to process awards and contact the recipients and nominators.
