Active Devon Volunteer Awards 2023 – nominations are now open
Published: 26 July 2023
Nominations are being sought for the 2023 Active Devon Volunteer Awards to recognise the contribution made by thousands of people who volunteer their time to help others get active.
The awards are a chance to say thank you to someone who goes the extra mile to support people in the community to be more active.
They might be a coach, an activity group leader, a club committee member or a charity group activity organiser. Whatever their role, their dedication and commitment to volunteering will have made a difference, contributing to improved health and wellbeing within their local communities by providing opportunities for people to move more.
A nomination will help to recognise, thank and celebrate these inspirational volunteers.
The winners for the Active Devon Volunteer Awards 2023 will each receive an award and a celebration with their group or team, as well as the chance to showcase the brilliant work they do.
There are three awards which will be chosen at the judge’s discretion from all the entries received.
The Outstanding Contribution to Inclusion Award will be based on the contribution of an individual towards promoting inclusion and full community participation during their volunteering.
The Outstanding Young Volunteer of the Year Award recognises the positive difference that young volunteers make to enable others to be physically active. The criteria for this award will be based on a young person between 14 and 25 years of age on the 5 June 2023 who has shown exceptional commitment to helping others move more.
The Volunteering Team of the Year Award celebrates the outstanding work of volunteer teams in Devon who are making a big difference to their local community.
Nominations are open until 10 September 2023. A shortlist of nominees will be selected by Active Devon and publicly announced in September.
A panel of judges, which will be made up of people within Devon who champion physical activity and volunteering will select the winners. The winners will be announced in October and a celebration event will take place at their location.
