Nominations for this year’s Cardiff Volunteer Awards are now closed. It has been an extraordinary year for volunteering, especially with volunteers’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to celebrate the effort volunteers have made to help out in our local communities in Cardiff.

Now is your opportunity to say THANK YOU to the thousands of volunteers who have gone above and beyond to support you or anyone you know, your community,  front-line workers, and or have made a significant contribution to any project in Cardiff.

The deadline for nominations is 30th October 2020. The Awards ceremony will take place on World Kindness Day, which is on the 13th November 2020 at 4pm on Zoom. Due to the uncertainty about government restrictions the awards will be held online.
