Our hunt will take us to all the areas of the city and will give you the opportunity to offer a well deserved pat on the back to the unsung heroes who make other people's lives that bit easier.
During the next few months we will be highlighting just a few of the people who are already making that extra bit of difference.
Click on the related links at the bottom of the page to read about some of the people already nominated and to give you ideas for putting forward the names of your own Community Champions.

THE Evening Times' Glasgow Community Champion Awards have been created to to crown the heroes of local communities.
We have teamed up with Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde Police, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue and Glasgow Community Planning Partnership to throw the spotlight on individuals and teams making a difference in their area.
Right up to the summer, we will visit every area of the city to recognise those community activists committed to improving lives.
We will be looking for examples of outstanding work, be it through improving housing or recreational facilities, cleaning up the environment, encouraging others into work or training, helping those less advantaged, or campaigning for improved services or safer communities.
We are searching for the best examples of individuals who give up their time, incredible charities or local organisations, young people who have shown inspirational bravery or fund-raising, plus neighbours who help those around them.
Those in the public service realm will also be recognised - teams and individuals whose vital work plays a vital role in enhancing the quality of life in Glasgow.
The awards have been broken down into 10 areas of the city, and six awards will be presented to winners at a high profile awards ceremony in each of the areas.
Winners from the east and west have already been chosen and in January we will be homing in on the southside.
You can nominate anyone in your area by filling in the application form available to download here - or send us your details and we will post a form to you.
Forms are also available at local police or fire stations and various council offices and libraries.
We are looking for nominations for Glasgow's community heroes in each of the following categories:
We want to hear inspirational stories of people who give up free time to make a significant contribution to other people's lives or to a community. This could be someone running a local sports club, campaigning for better services, tackling health issues or committed to cleaning up their area.
This recognises the life-enhancing work of community teams, organisations, charities or a group of volunteers. For example, any group involved in fund-raising, organising community events or making the community a better or safer place.
PUBLIC SERVICES INDIVIDUAL AWARD
This will be presented to people working for a public service in a local community who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. It could be a teacher, social worker, housing officer, doctor, nurse or emergency services officer.
PUBLIC SERVICES TEAM AWARD
This is for a remarkable public service team that has made an outstanding contribution to help those they serve. This team working in any public sector will have gone that extra mile to provide help and support, making a difference to the lives of others.
SENIOR CHAMPION AWARD
We are looking for a local hero aged 60 and over who, after many years of hard work, continues to devote much of their time to helping other individuals or groups in their community.
YOUNG COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS
It's never too early to become a Community Champion! We're looking to find people aged 17 and younger who have shown inspirational behaviour, perhaps through incredible fund-raising projects or acts of bravery. Nominations for young groups and individuals are welcome, and can include voluntary youth groups, uniformed organisations, community groups and schools.
