Nominations for our 2024 annual MP of the Year Awards are now open!

The MP of the Year Awards celebrate the work of MPs from across the country who actively work with underrepresented and disadvantaged communities across the UK. The awards provide motivation for MPs to work with diverse communities and highlights best practice.

The Patchwork Foundation believes in promoting and highlighting best practice. Each year MPs across the country work closely with diverse communities, with many MPs delivering excellent representation and coverage to otherwise underrepresented segments of society. The Patchwork Foundation rewards those winning MPs – nominated by members of the public or grassroots community organisations and selected by an independent panel of judges – by acknowledging them as the MPs of the Year.

In association with Mosaic Network, Operation Black Vote (OBV), The Faith and Belief Forum (formerly 3FF) and UpRising.

Every year we ask you to nominate the MP you believe has gone above and beyond to support and advocate for underrepresented and disadvantaged communities.  Nominations for the 2024 MP of the Year Awards are now open, so let us know who your MP of the Year is!

How it works

Our MP of the Year Awards seek to celebrate and recognise those MPs that uphold the ethos and values of the Foundation; to champion underrepresented, minority or disadvantaged communities in the UK.

The public first nominates MPs, sharing their reasons why. This is combined with research and information from each nominated MP which is collated into a standard form. The winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges who blind judge the nominees by considering the work and accolades of the selected MPs.

As a general rule, nominations for existing leaders of political parties, or those involved in an active leadership bid are not taken forward for consideration as well as those who do not meet the criteria above. Similarly, MPs under investigation or suspension would not be included.

The awards are presented at Speakers House in the Palace of Westminster. MPs from across the country, constituency members, masterclass graduates and community leaders come together to celebrate the nominees and award winners.
