The Bailiff’s COVID-19 Awards have been created to recognise and celebrate the work and commitment of individuals during the response to the coronavirus pandemic in Jersey. Awards will be presented to recognise deserving members of the community who have demonstrated exemplary qualities to their peers, colleagues, staff, or to the general public during the COVID-19 response.
The criteria for nominations are based on the themes of leadership, commitment, inspiration, tenacity and compassion. Submissions will be accepted for other reasons if they are outlined clearly, and there is demonstration of an individual excelling or operating beyond their usual capacity during the COVID-19 response.
Anyone can nominate someone for an award, however, submissions for nomination are required to be balanced and provide justification. The awards will recognise individual achievements in the following organisations:
- Government of Jersey
- States of Jersey
- Arm’s-length organisations
- Third sector organisations including charities, community and volunteer groups
- Private sector organisations that may provide direct support for the COVID-19 response in a public setting
The Bailiff, Mr Timothy Le Cocq, says, “Jersey’s response to COVID-19 has required many people to demonstrate exceptional levels of leadership, commitment and compassion. Many in the public sector and elsewhere have worked tirelessly to ensure that the Jersey community was as safe as possible.
“These awards will capture individuals within the specified criteria from public, private and third sectors. These exceptional acts and qualities should be recognised at Island level and we hope that these awards will go some way to doing that.
“I am proud of how our community pulled together and look forward to receiving submissions for these awards.”
The awards have also been devised to complement the national honours (i.e. BEM, MBE, OBE, CBE) which will be announced this autumn.
