The SURF Awards are widely recognised as the most prestigious in the field of Scottish community regeneration.

This year the 5 categories are:
  • Community Led Regeneration
  • Supporting Youth Employment
  • Scotland’s Most Improved Place
  • Housing and Regeneration
  • Creative Regeneration
The 2020 SURF Awards will have a particular focus, where relevant, on rewarding and showcasing projects who have adapted, or created, services to support their communities through the Covid-19 crisis. Projects can be judged on up to two years of previous activity, and will not be negatively scored for failing to deliver planned activities for 2020 which were impacted by Covid-19.

So if you know of or work with a great project or you think the area that you live/work in is worthy of the 'Most Improved Place' title them put them forward for an Award! It is a straightforward application form. Scotland's Towns Partnership is also proud to support the Most Improvemed Place category.
