Before nominating a group, (which can be of any size), please do check that they have been running for at least 3 years, and very importantly make sure that at least half of the group are volunteers.
Also, remember to ask for the group’s agreement to be nominated!
The form to nominate a group for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is straight forward. You can even do it online. Simply click here for both the form, and help to complete it. Remember that you can ask the group to give you information that you need to complete the nomination form.
Nominations must be made by a specified date in September each year, following which extensive checks take place. Winners are then announced the following June.
