Celebrating Selfless Dedication
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service celebrates and promotes the tireless work of those who help others in their communities. The highest-level award for volunteer groups, it was first awarded in 2003 after its creation the year before.
The award is the equivalent of an MBE for volunteer groups and honours work that is recognised as bringing clear benefits to the community across a range of areas, such as culture, heritage, wellbeing, and social support. Organisations presented with the award will receive a certificate and trophy. Find out more about putting forward a nomination for a local group to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The Lord-Lieutenant has been personally delighted to see so many organisations in Shropshire being rewarded for their selfless dedication, and hopes to support many more in being successfully recognised with a top-level award.
