Acumen People Awards to recognise local heroes

Acumen People, the law firm dedicated to protecting families, announced the launch of its new awards programme in support of Rockinghorse children’s charity.

The Acumen People Awards set out to recognise 7 – 17-year-olds within the local Sussex community who have gone above and beyond over the last 12 months. The awards feature a number of categories recognising exceptional actions taken by friends, siblings, parents, guardians, carers, teachers, fundraisers and other community heroes.

Nominations are now open – members of the public are invited to nominate a person they think may be worth a special mention and celebration due to their actions, achievements or inspiration over the past 12 months. It may be a sibling who has done a heroic act, a teacher who was inspirational or a fundraiser who has gone above and beyond. The awards programme celebrates such achievements.

Nominations can be entered on

Judges panel and awards ceremony

Penina Shepherd, Founder of Acumen People based in Hove said: “We want to recognise those who have contributed to society in a unique way. We want to reward those who make our world a better place and promote them as role models for other people in our community so that they can do the same.”

Nominations entries for the awards close on 31st March 2023 with all entries judged by a panel which includes Donna Holland, CEO of Rockinghorse children’s charity.

The finalists in each category will be announced on the Acumen People website and social media platforms in early May 2023. Each finalist and their families will be invited to the prestigious awards ceremony at The Old Ship Hotel, in Brighton on Friday 9th June 2023 where the winners for each category will be revealed. | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn
