We accept posthumous nominations with no restrictions in place for how long ago the volunteer passed away. It is also possible to fast track an award if the nominee has a terminal illness. In these instances, please contact the Volunteering team directly.
If you are not a Macmillan Professional or a Macmillan staff member, your nomination will need to be endorsed by someone who is.

If you need someone to endorse your nomination, don’t forget to allow enough time for them to read and approve it, and for any amends to be made.
