The British Citizen Award is a recognition programme (Honours) which is held bi-annually in the United Kingdom for individuals doing extraordinary work in their local community. It was founded by Mike Faulkner, Basil Preuveneers and Jacqui Wellings in September 2012.[1] The medal presentation takes place in January and July each year at the Palace of Westminster hosted by The Rt. Hon. Lord Dholakia.[2] In order to honour young people (16 and under) who are also doing great work in their community, have launched The British Citizen Youth Award, founded by Jacqui Wellings and Sara Yarrow, which also takes place at The Palace of Westminster annually in October each year.



The British Citizen Award is supported by Specsavers, Irwin Mitchell, Places for People and The I Newspaper, .


Individuals are nominated for The British Citizen Award provided that they have had a meaningful impact on their community. Nominees come from all across the UK, all cultural backgrounds, and from all sectors of the community.

Nominations are free and all successful applicants are invited to a presentation day at the Palace of Westminster in London. Those who receive a BCA will be encouraged to use the post nominal after their name, thus enabling them to promote their achievement in perpetuity.

Nominations will require validation, the first level of which is the seconding of all individual submissions. The BCA Independent Assessment Panel will then require evidence that the achievements, commitment and dedication outlined in the application form has brought benefit to any given community or group. Finally the panel will need to ratify the application before an award will be made. The robust process ensures that the award becomes meaningful, sought-after and long-lasting.
