NHS Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is pleased to be sponsoring the 2014 Good Neighbour Awards run by Blackburn with Darwen Council.
These awards pay tribute to helpful neighbours, unsung heroes who have never been recognised for their efforts, and who make their streets and neighbourhoods a better place.
Joe Slater, Chair of NHS Blackburn with Darwen CCG said: “We are delighted to be supporting these awards. The concept is a great one, good neighbours are important for society. They make communities tick.
“I am clear that people who make their neighbourhoods better places are contributing to improving the health and wellbeing of the borough. These awards pay tribute to the many selfless and thoughtful individuals in our community.
“For example, a neighbour spending five minutes to knock on the door of an elderly or vulnerable resident to make sure they are okay can help keep that person out of hospital. Strong communities are the frontline in tackling the borough’s health and wellbeing challenges.”
