Volunteer Recognition Awards


Volunteer Recognition Awards

This is your chance to show our volunteers just how special they are...

We all have volunteers working alongside us every day and we all know what an amazing job they do. Show your appreciation by nominating them for Norwood's Volunteer Recognition Awards.

These annual awards, which will be held on 13 September 2016, are one of the ways that Norwood recognises the contribution of our 1,000+ volunteers, who support us to provide vital services to thousands of people every year, including vulnerable children and their families, children with special educational needs, and people with learning disabilities.

Nominations don't open until 23 May, but please get your thinking caps on now so that you'll be ready to put forward your volunteer nominations when the time comes.

All of you who nominate will, of course, be invited along with your nominees to our prestigious awards, which will be held at the Royal Air Force Museum on the evening of Tuesday 13 September 2016.
