Volunteer Awards

Nominations open on 1 October and must be submitted by 31 October 2017.

Each year the Macmillan Volunteer Awards celebrate our amazing volunteers around the UK. These regional and national awards offer the chance to say a huge thank you for the time, care, expertise and commitment our volunteers so generously give.

This October we’re calling on all volunteers, Macmillan staff, corporate partners and professionals – everyone connected to volunteering with Macmillan – to nominate individuals or groups that deserve recognition for going the extra mile to make a difference to people living with cancer. Your nominations will also help us to showcase the enormous value Macmillan volunteers bring to people with cancer and to inspire others to make their time matter for Macmillan.

How do I nominate?

Visit our brand new nominations site and create a profile so that you’re ready to submit once nominations open throughout October. 

Download or order our nominations booklet - written by our Volunteer Forum - for a handy guide to the award categories and top tips on how to write a great submission.

What happens after I submit my nomination?

All nominees receive a personal thank you letter and are entered first for a regional award, with selected regional winners also being put forward to receive a national award. Our UK panel then chooses national winners from the pool of regional winners. Long service awards and regional awards are presented locally, whilst national winners receive their awards at the Volunteer Awards ceremony at Macmillan’s 2018 Volunteer Conference. 

If you need help with your nomination or have any questions about our Volunteer Awards, please email us at volunteerawards@macmillan.org.uk or call us on 020 7840 4644.
