This year ITV News Central is once again joining forces with the Daily Mirror to find the individual you think deserves to be crowned our Local Hero 2013. We're looking for people who go the extra mile to be a real force for good in their neighbourhood.
They could be volunteers or professionals who go way above and beyond the call of duty - they're the people you just want to say a big 'thank-you' to and to showcase their story on ITV.
If you know someone who deserves that unique recognition, you can nominate them here.
You can also pick up a nomination form at Lidl stores.
Full terms and conditions can be found here.
The closing date for applications is midnight on Friday 16 August 2013.
