Our Volunteer Recognition Awards take place each year during National Volunteer Week.
Since the Awards began in the early 1990's, their purpose has been to recognise outstanding efforts and achievements by volunteers of all ages, in all sectors.
Volunteer Recognition Awards are a great way to acknowledge and celebrate your volunteers, tell their stories and encourage others to volunteer with your organisation.
Nominations for our 2023 Volunteer Recognition Awards are now open!
Not-for-profit voluntary organisations or projects within the Canterbury region are invited to nominate a volunteer, or group of volunteers, to receive an Award.
Nominations are open from Monday 6th March 2023 until close of business on Friday 19th May 2023.
The Awards Ceremony will be held on Monday 19th June, during National Volunteer Week.
Photographs of the Awards ceremony will be made available on our Photo Gallery page within a week of the ceremony.
