Message from the Lord Lieutenant

queens award

“The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.

Any group doing voluntary work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated for the award. Each group is assessed on the benefit it brings to the local community and its standing within that community.”

How to nominate

To nominate a group for the Queens Award for Voluntary Service, please visit https://qavs.direct.gov.uk/

There is specific guidance on nominating a group for the Queens Award for Voluntary Service here: https://qavs.direct.gov.uk/guidance-notes

You can also go directly to the online nomination form at https://qavs.direct.gov.uk Nominators will be required to sign up to complete and submit a nomination form. I recommend that you read the guidance notes before completing the online nomination form as there is no facility to save partially completed forms.
