When the UK locked down, they stepped up.

The UK is tentatively heading out of lockdown, but here at the Black British Business Awards, we do not want to forget the frontline workers who made huge sacrifices and put their lives at risk so that we could stay safe, fed and connected. We want to make sure that the legacy of the pandemic in the UK showcases the psychological, emotional, economical and physical resilience of our community in the face of adversity, and celebrates their courage, resolve and dedication.

We believe that those who stepped up when the UK locked down are our heroes. To honour and celebrate them, we are placing a call out to our community to nominate a Black British frontline worker they know so they can be profiled on our website, social media channels and in our 2020 BBBAwards Brochure.
