Future Friendly

Local businesses can help make the community a great place to live. We as individuals can't do it alone so let's join with local businesses to create change.

Reward a business

Simply tell us what your favourite local businesses are doing and you'll help them win awards. With your help they'll survive and thrive and be the best they can be.


There are awards for reducing plastic waste, for taking low carbon actions such as using renewable electricity, and for keeping trade local. And more to come.

The Guide

With your help, we’re asking businesses to be future friendly. We’ll be placing them in our new guide where you can search and see the businesses that are truly the best – not just for you – but for your community, for nature, for the climate and for your children. Check it out – and if you’re working for a business, watch the video clip.
