This year's Cornwall Celebrates Volunteering Awards are now open for nominations. As in previous years, we need YOUR help to nominate those volunteers who go that extra mile and deserve recognition for their efforts. Have you been impressed by the efforts of a particular volunteer? Does the organisation you volunteer for go out of its way to look after its volunteers?

This year, we have made some minor changes to the categories, merging "Health" with "Supporting Elders" to create a "Health & Care" category and renamed the "Personal Development and Overcoming Barriers" category to simply "Personal Development"

The full list of categories is shown below and you have until 31st August 2017 to make your nominations - which you can do on or offline.

Of course in our eyes, every volunteer deserves recognition and whilst we cant give certificates to all 140,000 of Cornwall's volunteers, we can shine a light on their outstanding work through events like this.

Everyone who is nominated will receive a certificate whilst the Highly Commended and Winners will join us at the Awards Ceremony and have glass trophies and certificates as a reminder of the day.
