Vision Awards 2023 - Category Criteria


We are pleased to announce that the Sports Award will be granted to an individual, group, or organisation that has demonstrated exceptional commitment to sports in the local community. This could be due to their outstanding performances and dedication to achieving success, as well as their efforts to promote physical activity services and encourage participation among residents.


Recognising Excellence within the Swale Community Leisure Contracts.
The Leisure Award is a prestigious recognition for those working in leisure within our contracts. Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond in their role, made a positive impact on the local community, or been an exceptional team player in 2023? This award can be nominated by other staff members or our valued customers. Show your appreciation for those who truly deserve it.



Swale Community Leisure is proud to present the Health Award, which honours those who have made significant contributions to improving the well-being of the Borough's residents. Our focus on physical activity and health is integrated into all our initiatives, whether at leisure centres, community locations, or through partnerships. Nominate an organisation, group, or individual for their exceptional efforts in making Swale a healthier place.



The Education Award acknowledges organisations, groups, or individuals who promote physical literacy and the significance of an active lifestyle, or who encourage lifelong learning of this essential life skill. Education plays a crucial role in delivering a holistic approach to enhance personal well-being, which can be measured as Social Impact Value.




Recognising Local Contributions: The Culture/Community Award. This award honours individuals who have made a significant contribution to their local area by promoting inclusivity, improving the local environment, and expanding the reach of Sport, Leisure, Health, Education and Culture within the community.
