We're looking for nominations for the ITV Local Hero Award, which will form part of this year's Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.
We want to hear about people whose passion and commitment have impacted the neighbourhood and lives of those around them, and who give up their own time to benefit others.
From setting up or running charities and community groups to tackling local problems, like antisocial behaviour or the lack of amenities, we want to honour individuals who are a force for good in their community.
