Deadline for Nominations – 2nd May 2019
Braintree District Council and Community 360 are pleased to announce that the Braintree District Volunteer Awards are open for nominations for the 3rd year.
The Awards recognise the vital role that volunteers, adults or young people, have within our communities.
Who can I nominate?
You can nominate someone who spends time doing something unpaid that benefits individuals or groups or the environment? This can include volunteering through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action. It might be fundraising, running a sports club, looking after the environment, organising an event, or helping around the community.
Why not nominate someone you know who volunteers in one of the four Award Categories?:
- Inspirational role model
Recognises volunteers who have made an exceptional contribution by inspiring others to achieve outstanding success, or who inspire with their achievements. They may have overcome adversity or difficulties and are shining examples to all of us.
- Volunteer group award

- Going the extra mile award
Acknowledges those who go above and beyond normal expectations in their volunteering role and who may have taken on one or more special initiatives to help others and the organisation.
- Long service award
Awarded to volunteers who have shown exceptional long service to celebrate the effort and commitment they’ve shown over a number of years.
