About nominating

We’re delighted that you’re thinking about nominating a group for a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service! It’s a great way to get outstanding local volunteers the recognition they deserve.
To nominate, you will need to:

Step 1:Use our eligibility criteria to make sure the group is eligible for an award and you are eligible to nominate.
Step 2:Set up a QAVS nominator account – it only takes a minute.
Step 3:Get two separate letters of support from two additional people.
Step 4:Complete the online nomination form.  This will include group contact information, a summary of what the group does, who its beneficiaries are, the benefits of its work and what makes the volunteers impressive.
We are no longer accepting nominations for the 2023 awards. However, we will start accepting nominations for the 2024 awards from 1st April 2023.
