The British Citizen Awards


The British Citizen Award (BCA) – Recognition Programme


 Recognition for individuals doing extraordinary things in the local community

Whether it is someone who has devoted their time to volunteering, someone who has helped the local community, someone who has cared for others, or just someone who is uplifting and makes a difference to your life – nominate them today and make a difference to their life.

The British Citizen Award is open to each and every UK citizen and serve to recognise exceptional endeavour. Whether they have excelled in business, healthcare, the arts, in the community or education, get the recognition they deserve. We have two presentation ceremonies per year (January and July) which take place at the Palace of Westminster hosted by The Rt. Hon. Lord Dholakia.

Welcome to our Patrons



Patron: Bradley Walsh

My filming schedule usually precludes me from being an active supporter of many charities but, when I was invited to be the new patron of the British Citizen Awards and heard about the brilliant work they do honouring the nation’s unsung heroes, how could I refuse?

Championing the work that these amazing people do for others is a great honour and I only hope I can do them justice. Just reading about the contribution that today’s recipients have made to our society is truly humbling.

I wish them all the very best in their many divergent endeavours – continue to light up the world with your selflessness. – Bradley Walsh

Patron: Dame Mary Perkins, Specsavers, Co-founder

 “I became patron of the BCAs because I wholeheartedly believe that exceptionally devoted and dedicated people, whose selfless efforts make our world a better, safer, healthier and happier place, deserve to be honoured. I’m proud to be involved in an organisation which recognises and celebrates our nation’s unsung heroes” – Dame Mary Perkins




Presentation DayMaureen Brass and Patsy Elliott


All successful nominees will be invited to attend one of the presentation days at the Palace of Westminster in January or July. The presentation day offers those being recognised a unique opportunity to experience the history and atmosphere of the UK’s seat of democracy. This will be a truly memorable occasion befitting the achievements of those receiving the award. Numbers are extremely limited for this event so only those receiving BCAs and the person that nominated them will automatically receive an official invitation. The British Citizen Award | The peoples honour’s.
