Do you know a voluntary group that deserves recognition for the work it does? Why not consider nominating it for a national award? Terry Hephrun, Chair of the Lancashire Panel for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) said “In 2002, in celebration of Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee, The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service by Groups in the Community was established. Its purpose is to recognise exceptional groups of individuals who are giving their time freely for the benefit of others and are making a real difference in the communities they serve. It is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon groups of this kind and is equivalent in status to the MBE.
Further details on entrance criteria and the nomination process (which is a fairly straightforward online system) are available from: https://qavs.culture.gov.uk/
Nominations for the 2022 awards can be made from 1 April and the closing date is 15 September 2021.
