The Queen’s Honours and Awards


There are many people living in Dudley borough who give their time to make the borough a better place to live and many of these go the extra mile, making an outstanding contribution to their communities and the people within them.

Dudley CVS are passionate about recognising the contributions of amazing local volunteers and run our own Dudley Volunteer Awards each year, however, we would also like to encourage outstanding local volunteers to be recognised nationally through the Queen’s Honours and also the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.

The honours system recognises those who:

  • made achievements in public life
  • committed themselves to serving and helping Britain

They’ll usually have made life better for other people or be outstanding at what they do.
