Queens Award workshop

at Eventbrite

This event is only open to those working/volunteering and living in Cambridgeshire.

About

This informal workshop aims to widen the understanding and support applications for the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS), which is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK.

The award was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups and is awarded for life. Within Cambridgeshire, there are only a handful of winners, and we feel there are more worthy groups that should be nominated.

The award is presented to outstanding groups of volunteers whose initiative and impact are truly exceptional. Each group is assessed on its benefit to the local community and its standing within that community. Volunteers are expected to be leading their work.

 

Who should attend this event?

Anyone. This workshop is open to those working in a group thinking about approaching a possible nominator or a member of the public thinking about nominating a local group.

Or even those just wanting to learn more about the award and process.

 

What the event will cover

• General information about the award and who can be nominated

• The process and some handy hints

• What the organisation will need to do if nominated

• Questions and support
