Honours and Awards

Recognition of the highest kind

The Royal Family plays an important part in rewarding businesses, organisations and individuals for displaying a commitment to excellence and making a difference in the world.

Receiving an Honour or a King’s Award is regarded as the highest recognition in many fields.

How does the Honours system and King’s awards work?

The structure of the Honours systems and the King’s Awards is that it aims to inspire and reward people and organisations from all walks of life, whether that is an unsung volunteer who has worked tirelessly for years or a ground-breaking technology start-up.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire is committed to promoting Honours and King’s Awards within the county to encourage members of the public to make nominations where they see work that is worthy of recognition and support people making suggestions.
If you need more information about making a nomination or applying for an award, the Lord-Lieutenant can help.
