The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation.

Any group doing volunteer work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated. Each group is assessed on the benefit it brings to the local community and its standing within that community. Take a look at the guidance notes for further conditions and general information. Unfortunately, you can’t nominate yourselves.

Nominations should be submitted by midnight on 14 September 2018 for the 2019 awards.
