Islington Volunteer of the Year Awards 2021 – Nominations now open!!


Voluntary Action Islington exists to encourage and support individuals and community organisations to
make a positive difference to life in the Borough.
Each year we organise awards to celebrate the achievements of people volunteering in Islington. In a year riven by Covid-19, it’s even more important that we all celebrate the efforts our volunteers made to help people affected by the virus, in one way or another.

The awards will be presented by The Mayor of Islington Cllr Troy Gallagher on the evening of Wednesday on 15th December 2021. A panel will judge the nominations.

This year there will be 5 awards:

1. Young Volunteer of the Year: 16 – 25-year-olds
2. Volunteer of the Year: 26 – 60 year olds
3. Older Volunteer of the Year: 60+ year olds
4. Pat Haynes Memorial Trustee of the Year
5. Volunteering Team of the Year

The closing date for nominations is on Wednesday 24th November.

Any individual volunteering in Islington can be nominated for an award.

Award winners will receive a certificate and a prize. Prizes will be donated by our sponsor DoubleTree by Hilton Angel Kings Cross.

Nominate your volunteers here!
