WCVA | Nominations are now open for the Wales Volunteer of the Year Awards 2018

Do you know of an inspirational individual or group that has made a real difference to their area or to the lives of others?

Recent data from the Third Sector Data Hub shows that 28% of people in Wales volunteer. If you know someone who goes above and beyond to donate their time to a good cause, why not nominate them for a Wales Volunteer of the Year Award? It’s your chance to get these remarkable people the recognition they deserve.

There are six categories for nominations:

– Adult  (25 years and over)
– Young volunteer (under 25 years)
– ‘Green’ volunteer (individual of any age who volunteers with an environmental organisation or project)
– Trustee
– Groups (two or more individuals, whether as an informal group or a formally constituted organisation)
– ‘Digital’ volunteer  (an individual who has helped tackle digital exclusion and helped others to experience the benefits of using ICT) supported by Digital Communities Wales

To nominate an inspirational individual or to find out more, visit the WCVA Wales Volunteer of the Year web page.

The closing date for nominations is 20 April 2018.
