Star Volunteer Award 2017

Know an outstanding volunteer?

Then nominate them for the 2017 Star Volunteer of the Year Award.

The awards are being organised in West Somerset and in Taunton Deane by Engage, as part of the Somerset-wide Star Awards to celebrate National Volunteers Week 2017.

To qualify, someone has to give their time freely helping their local community, a voluntary group or individuals in need of support, in West Somerset or in Taunton Deane. You can submit nominations for two different categories, namely ‘Individual’ or ‘Group’ (two or more individuals, whether as an informal group or as a formally constituted organisation).  They don’t have to volunteer with a large charity, they may well do their volunteering by being a good neighbour.

In addition for West Somerset there will be a 2016 Environment Volunteer Award sponsored by the Exmoor National Park Authority. Nominations for this new award will be selected from those submitted for the general awards that relate to individuals or groups whose volunteering is intended primarily to maintain or improve the physical environment to the benefit of the local community and/or wildlife.

All nominations need to be received by Engage no later than 5.00pm on Friday 21 April. Independent panels will choose the category winners for the two districts as well as the West Somerset and Taunton Deane Overall Volunteers of the Year 2016.

All nominations will also be carried forward to the Somerset County Council Chairman's Awards in the autumn where the overall Somerset County Star will be announced.

Give that special person or volunteer group the recognition that they deserve.
