Volunteer Awards now open!

The nominations for this year’s Volunteer Awards are now open

The Volunteer Awards are a chance to recognise the volunteers that go above and beyond in their role to help out DWT. Anyone can nominate a volunteer for an award, and they will be presented at the AGM in November.

In terms of the rules around nominations for the awards, it currently stands that:

  • Volunteers may only receive an award for the same role once in a seven year period.  If volunteers are nominated in subsequent years, this fact will be noted and in time they may be put forward for a Fellowship.
  • Volunteers may receive additional awards for different volunteer roles within DWT.
  • Volunteers may be nominated in a couple or as a small team if what they have achieved has been a joint effort and where it would not be appropriate to single out any individual.

To make a nomination for the awards, please download a nomination form (below).  Completed nomination forms must be returned no later than the 15th September 2019.
