2. How to make a nomination

You can nominate a group for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service online.

You must be independent of the group you are nominating. Read the guidance notes if you need help.

Support for your nomination

When you nominate a group you also need letters from 2 people who support your nomination and are independent from the group you’re nominating - for example:

  • someone who benefits from the group’s work
  • someone who’s aware of the group’s work

The letters must include:

  • how the group helps the local community
  • how you know the group

Submit your nomination by 18 September to make sure your group is considered for an award the year after you nominate them.
