What a year it has been! Among the vivid images marking the time since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic are those of volunteers stepping forward to help the more vulnerable get through this difficult time. This includes many parishes, schools and charities who have responded and reached out in the most amazing and often imaginative and creative ways. It has been truly remarkable.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the outstanding efforts volunteers have made across the Diocese of Westminster in charities, parishes and schools. The Diocese covers, roughly speaking, London north of the River Thames and all of Hertfordshire.

You now have the chance to say a big “thank you” to those special people who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to help others in the community. Give them the recognition they deserve by nominating them for a Social Action Award and by encouraging others to pick their ‘volunteer/s of the year’, too.

There are 4 Social Action Awards:

1. Parish Social Outreach Award

2. School Social Outreach Award

3. CVS Charity Partner Award

4. Building Resilience Award

(Nominations are now closed.)

A panel will consider all nominations and select the category winners.

The Awards recognition ceremony will take place as part of an evening of celebration of volunteering in the Diocese on 2 June 2021 from 6.30 pm – 8 pm on Zoom.
