Local Hero Awards
What are the Local Hero Awards?
The people of Southampton, from all walks of life, have faced up to some of the toughest challenges over the past 2 years. Many have put their lives at risk to help others, bring a little joy to someone or just help us navigate through the traumatic pandemic.
Most of these people remain unsung and unknown.
That is why RG Security has launched its Local Hero Awards, designed to recognise and celebrate the heroic individuals throughout Southampton who went the extra mile and helped their family, friends and local community get through this challenging period.
And we need your help to find these people!

How does it work?
The awards are open to anyone and work as follows:
RG Security is inviting businesses and individuals in Southampton to nominate a Local Hero across 5 categories.
This could be anyone – a carer, friend, colleague – someone that has gone above and beyond and worked tirelessly to support those in need over the last 2 years.
All entries will be publicised on our website and across our social media channels.
The 5 category winners will be decided by our judging panel and awarded a prize. An award will also be given to the overall Local Hero.
