Civic Voice heralds BCA award

Civic Voice is the national charity for the civic movement in England. Its role is to make the places where everyone lives more attractive, enjoyable, and distinctive. It promotes civic pride and speaks up for civic societies and local communities across England. Civic Voice believes that everyone has the right to live somewhere they can be proud of and works towards enhancing the quality of life and the environment in local communities.

The organization also serves as a voice for the civic movement, which includes over a thousand local civic and amenity societies. These societies focus on voluntary and community action to improve the places where people live, work, and relax. They champion the importance of these places to decision-makers and opinion formers in various sectors. Civic societies are known for being independent and grassroots organizations that can be provocative, stubborn, forceful, inspiring, and outspoken on behalf of the places they care about.

Civic Voice also aims to build stronger, more active, and more engaged communities through its work and aspires to have a nation of active citizens³. It is a fundamental source of civic pride and plays an essential role in helping individuals and communities understand and take action to improve their lives through the places they live.
