Volunteer Awards

Celebrate an outstanding volunteer

Across the UK, our volunteers tirelessly give their time to help people affected by cancer. Their generosity and spirit help Macmillan provide support to those who need it most. These incredible volunteers deserve huge thanks and, with the prestigious Macmillan Volunteer Awards, we’re going to make sure they get it. 

Our awards recognise volunteers at both a regional and a UK-wide level with the winners selected by fellow volunteers. By sharing stories about volunteers, our awards play an important role in raising the profile of volunteering in your area. If you know an exceptional Macmillan volunteer or team of volunteers who have gone above and beyond to help people affected by cancer, help us say thank you by nominating them for an award. 

How do I nominate?

Nominations for the 2017 Macmillan Volunteer Awards are now closed and will open again in autumn 2017.

What happens next?

Regional panels first select regional winners for each award category. Our UK panel will then choose UK winners from the pool of regional winners. The UK winners will be presented with their awards at the Volunteer Awards dinner held at the 2017 Volunteer Conference, whilst regional winners will be celebrated locally.
