The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service
The MBE for volunteer groups
The Queen’s Award for voluntary Service is an annual award made to recognise and reward excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.
Groups must be nominated for example, by beneficiaries of their work, members of the public, representatives of public bodies, or other voluntary groups. Nominations are assessed by a regional committee before being passed to a national committee for final selection and recommendation to The Queen.
