Active Devon Volunteer Awards 2024

Jun 6, 2024

The Active Devon Volunteer Awards have returned this week for a third year running, offering you a chance to nominate those who help others in the community to become more physically active, and improving their health and wellbeing in the process.

The awards are to recognise unpaid efforts by volunteers across Devon who support people in their community to be more physically active. Teams or individuals can be nominated, with two award categories for impressive younger volunteers in the 14-17 and 18-25 age categories.

This year, there are seven award categories:

•            The Outstanding Young Volunteer of the Year Category (14-17 years)

•            The Outstanding Young Volunteer of the Year Category (18-25 years)

•            The Volunteering Team of the Year Category

•            North Devon District and Torridge Category

•            East Devon District, Mid Devon District and Exeter Category

•            West Devon District and Plymouth Category

•            South Hams District, Teignbridge and Torbay Category

One final award will be judged from all the entries received –

•            The Outstanding Contribution to Inclusion Category

Tamsin Phelvin from Active Devon said, “We are absolutely delighted to bring back our Volunteer Awards for 2024. Building on the huge success of previous years, we are hoping for even more nominations this year, showcasing the hard work of all those deserved volunteers across Devon.”

The nominations are open now and will close at 5pm on Sunday 8 September 2024. Each nomination will receive a certificate. A panel of judges who champion physical activity and volunteering will shortlist and select the winners for each category.  Winners will receive an exclusive award and the chance to celebrate their success with their team or club in November.
