MBE for voluntary groups
Last chance to nominate an organisation for the MBE for voluntary groups.
There's still time to nominate a local voluntary group for The
Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the MBE for volunteer
organisations, by getting your nomination forms in by
Friday 30 September 2011. Visit www.direct.gov.uk/qavs or email email@example.com
Whether the nomination comes from friends, family or beneficiaries
or a member of the public, it's a great way to recognise the huge
contribution volunteering groups make to people's lives.
The UK National Honour was created by the Queen to mark the Golden
Jubilee in 2002 and recognises the outstanding contributions made
to local communities by groups of volunteers. Next year, the
Queen's Diamond Jubilee year, is also the Award's 10th
Among the 983 organisations who have already received this Award
in the last 10 years are volunteers from groups working in large
cities and rural communities across the United Kingdom. These
groups support the needs of people of all ages, abilities, social
backgrounds and ethnic origins.
