How Can We Recognise People Volunteering Their Time in N Ireland?
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest civil Award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It is the MBE for volunteer groups. Any group doing volunteer work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated for the Award.
An information session to promote the Award and explain the nomination process, is being organised by Volunteer Now for potential nominators and interested groups. It will be an opportunity to meet those involved in promoting the Award and hear from someone who has been through the process.
Date: 22nd April 2020
Time: 10.30am – 12pm
Venue: Youth Action, 14 College Square N, Belfast BT1 6AS
Please pass this onto anyone who might be interested in hearing more about how volunteers can get recognition. If you have a newsletter or email that goes out to your networks or other organisations please include this in it to help spread the word.
Volunteering is at the heart of our communities; why not raise its profile and achieve recognition for the difference that volunteers make? Nominations are open for the Award from April – September each year.
