Nominations for this year’s Cardiff Volunteer Awards are now OPEN. It has been an extraordinary year for volunteering, especially with volunteers’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic and readjusting as the restrictions of lockdown have eased. 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. To nominate an individual or organisation please click HERE.

The deadline for nominations is 29th October 2021. The Awards ceremony will take place on the Friday 12th November at 4pm on Zoom. Due to the uncertainty about government restrictions the awards will be held online.
