The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Applications will be judged by a panel of voluntary sector experts, chaired by former broadcaster Martyn Lewis CBE, who will then recommend a list of final awardees to The Queen. The panel will focus on:-

  • The scale and impact of the charity in its work with young people aged 16-25
  • The extent to which volunteers are involved in delivering these outcomes
  • Charities will be asked to provide evidence and examples to demonstrate this when submitting their application.

Applications must be submitted by Friday 17 June 2022 and the application form can be found here: The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Volunteering Award – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
