Who Will Care? Awards 2018

22 March 2018

Who Will Care? Awards 2018

The prestigious Who Will Care? Awards make a much anticipated return in May with nominations now open.

 

The date of the 2018 awards has now been confirmed as Wednesday 23 May and will see a celebration of volunteering across the county.

 

The awards bring together communities and individuals from across Essex who are working to make Essex an even greater place to live, work and visit.  Last year, 1 in 3 people in Essex undertook some kind of volunteering - this is a great way to recognise those who make a real difference to others and their communities.

 

This year there are 7 categories:

 

The Business Award - for commercial organisations who have made an impact in their community.

 

The Voluntary Community Organisation Award - reflecting innovation or outstanding service delivery by a third sector organisation.

 

Individual Volunteer Award (Young Person) - for volunteers aged under 18 who have demonstrated outstanding commitment within their community.  This may be something they have dome independently or in connection with a charity/community group or employer.

 

Volunteer Team Award - a group of two or more volunteers of any age who have made an outstanding contribution to their community either independently or with a charity, community group or their employer.

 

Innovation Award - for social enterprises, commercial organisations and individuals who have demonstrated innovation to support the community.

 

Individual Adult Volunteer Award - awarded for demonstrating outstanding commitment within their community either independently or through a charity/community group or through their employer.
 
Individual Volunteer – overcoming adversity - awarded for demonstrating outstanding commitment within their community either independently or through a charity/community group or through their employer, whilst overcoming personal adversity.

 

If there is a business, charity or individual that you feel deserves recognition for their volunteering efforts in Essex then nominate them now by filling in an online form.
