Applications are open for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

The PEOPLE of Craven are invited to nominate a group of deserving volunteers for the equivalent of an MBE.

Nominations for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – originally launched in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee – are now open. Awards are given to groups that deserve recognition for outstanding service by giving freely of their time to benefit others and making a real difference in the communities they serve.

It is the highest honor that can be awarded to groups of this type and its status is equivalent to that of the MBE.

Terry Hephrun, chairman of the Lancashire Committee for the Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service (QAVS), said he hoped there would be a good number of entries. “The Queen’s Award not only serves to recognize volunteer groups, but also demonstrates the high respect in which volunteerism is held.

“We all know the value of volunteer efforts to support communities, especially in the difficult circumstances we continue to face in 2022. In this Platinum Jubilee year, it seems appropriate to seek to encourage a good number of nominations.”

Details of the entry criteria and nomination process can be found at: https://qavs.dcms.gov.uk/

Nominations for the 2023 awards close September 15.

Previous winners at Craven have included Grassington Hub and Clapham Village Store.
