This category will be judged upon the most innovative and active centre to date, how they have transformed their operations to cater for their community’s needs, the centre’s visitor feedback, staff training and coordination, regulatory compliance and your excellence in this area.

Pictures, research findings, funding management, fundraising ideas introduced, and videos will help each application. Please include as much supporting documentation (visuals, photos, charts, etc) as possible to strengthen your application.

We strongly recommend that you write out your application on a word document before inputting into the form. If anything goes wrong you don't want to lose all your info and start again!
