Volunteer Awards to recognise their acheivements

Horsham District Council is once again set to recognise and celebrate all the great work that the Horsham District’s volunteers do, as the Horsham District Volunteer Awards return for 2023.

The Volunteer Awards scheme, launched for the first time in 2022, aims to highlight the many amazing volunteers who work tirelessly to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors of the Horsham District.

The 2023 Volunteer Awards scheme is now open and the council would encourage as many people as possible to nominate volunteers by 2nd May 2023 at 9am.

There are seven different award categories to vote for using the online form at: www.horsham.gov.uk/volunteerawards2023

Anyone can be nominated for one of the volunteer awards categories as long as they are a volunteer within a voluntary sector organisation in the Horsham District and have not already won an award in this scheme.

There will be an awards evening at Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens during Volunteers Week on Wednesday 7th June 2023. All award winners will be invited to attend.

1. Biggest heart award

Does someone in your volunteering team always give it their all? Is their heart literally bursting with pride in the work that they do? Are they a brilliant listener and do they go above and beyond to help make the difference?

2. Trustee of the year

Sometimes it’s the quiet ones who are the unsung heroes, quietly leading their charity to fulfil its purposes and potential. Which trustee inspires you?

3. Long service award

Do you have a volunteer on your team who has been volunteering with you so long, that you’re now not sure when they started? Tell the story of how they got started volunteering.

4. Outstanding contribution award

Of course, all volunteers make an outstanding contribution, but is there someone in your team who has achieved something utterly extraordinary?

5. Permanent smile award

Volunteers that are there to welcome people with open arms and a smile are worth their weight in gold. Is there someone on your team you think should be recognised for lifting morale, celebrating successes, and smiling their way through their volunteering?

6. The volunteer dream team award

There is no “I” in team, and truly believe you can get anything done so long as you don’t mind who takes the credit. Is your volunteer team the “dream team” – make a nomination to celebrate their achievements!

7. Young volunteer award

Do you have a committed young volunteer (under 18) who is an inspiration? Do they have a fantastic approach to their volunteering? Are they inspiring others to get involved in volunteering locally?
