Honours Nominations

All nominations should be made directly to the Head of the Honours and Appointments Secretariat at the Cabinet Office.  A comprehensive guide to the Honours System, including nomination forms can be found at https://www.gov.uk/honours

Anyone can nominate a deserving individual within their community whether they are a friend or a work colleague or someone who has helped them in a specific way. It is important not to tell the nominated person what you are doing, and then privately ask other people to write supporting letters.

Submissions have no closing date and can take up to 18 months or longer to process, depending on when submitted.

 

The Honours List

The honours list is announced twice a year on The Queen’s official birthday in June and again just before the end of the year, known as the New Year’s Honours.

The presentation of awards usually takes places at an investiture at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle. However, in some circumstances the Lord-Lieutenant may be asked to present the award locally on behalf of The Queen. All British Empire Medals (BEM) are presented by Lord-Lieutenants on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen at local presentation events.
