The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – Nominations for 2021 Awards

Developing and sustaining community life.

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 groups of individuals who are giving their time freely for the benefit of others. It is the highest honour that canbe bestowed upon groups of this kind and is equivalent in status to the MBE.

Further details on entrance criteria and the nomination process are available from: https://qavs.culture.gov.uk/

Nominations for the 2021 awards can be made now with the closing date of 25 September 2020.
