Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to volunteering for your Men’s Shed?

Royal Voluntary Service, together with its president HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, and in partnership with The Big Jubilee Lunch, have launched the Platinum Champion Awards to recognise and reward volunteers who have given their time to help others in their community.

The awards will celebrate the country’s volunteering spirit and the example set by HM The Queen, the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.

From those who have been volunteering for many years to those that stepped forward during the pandemic, the awards will recognise volunteers of all ages, from all corners of Britain and from a range of causes including Men’s Sheds across the UK.

The Volunteer Award categories

There are 7 Platinum Champion Award categories including:

  • Older people and dementia support
  • Young people and children
  • Crisis and welfare
  • Community
  • Mental health and companionship
  • Physical health and disability
  • NHS and social care
