Nominations for the The King’s Award for Voluntary Service 2024 are now open.

Created in 2002 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee, and previously known as The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS), the Award has been shining a light on the fantastic work of voluntary groups from all across the UK for many years.

It’s now time for nominations to be submitted for next year’s Awards, which are the equivalent to an MBE. It is the highest Award given to local voluntary groups in the UK, and they are awarded for life.

This year, the KAVS is looking to celebrate:

Groups that are truly outstanding and making a big difference to their local community.

Groups where volunteers, rather than paid staff, are in the driving seat.

Groups that have highest standards in everything they do.

Do you know an exception group in Kent, if so, why not nominate them?
