Pride of Bracknell Forest Awards, launched in 2005, showcase the very best of Bracknell Forest’s community and bring together ‘incredible individuals and good causes’ across education, business, sport, the local government and voluntary organisations.

The awards span many different categories in order to celebrate the breadth of local achievements, including schools, teachers, businesses, young people, charities, and individuals who have gone above and beyond for services to their community.
