The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
In 2002, in celebration of Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee, the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service by Groups in the Community was established. Its purpose is to recognise groups of individuals who are giving their time freely for the benefit of others.
It is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon groups of this kind and is equivalent in status to the MBE. As such, the Queen's Award not only serves to provide recognition of volunteer groups, but also demonstrates the high respect in which volunteering is held.
Groups may be nominated if they meet the following eligibility requirements:
Please note: Groups that are solely involved in fundraising activity for charitable purposes are not eligible for an Award e.g. groups involved in street collections, jumble sales or charity shops, the primary purpose of which is to raise money.
