Local government honours

Information and guidance on how to make an honours nomination.


On 20 May 2020, the Prime Minister announced a new process for honours nominations, making it easier to nominate those who have contributed to the coronavirus response. Contributions can include:

  • frontline work supporting the most vulnerable members of society and those who have caught coronavirus
  • providing critical care to coronavirus patients
  • developing innovations to support the vulnerable and those with coronavirus
  • going to extraordinary lengths to keep critical services going
  • volunteering in the community or for service organisations in support of those affected by coronavirus

The nomination form requires details about the candidate and a summary of the impact the person has made.
