Every day, millions of people across the United Kingdom are making a difference by volunteering to offer vital support service to those less privilaged or strugling within our local communities. Each year outstanding examples of these works, individuals and organisations are celebrated through the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS). Created in 2002 for the Queen's Golden Jubilee, QAVS awards have been shining a light on the fantastic work of voluntary groups for years. Equivalent to an MBE, QAVS are the highest awards given to local voluntary groups in the UK, and they are awarded for life. this year 2022, we are honoured to be awarded such a prestigious prize.
NATIONAL DIVERSITY AWARDS
Charities, role models and community heroes will be honoured at the 2021 & 2019 ceremony showcasing their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity, and inclusion: thus, embracing the excellence of all our citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, and culture. The concept for the National Diversity Awards arose when The Diversity Group identiﬁed an urgent need for more positive role models to be actively promoted, with the aim to empower and inspire the wide breadth of diverse communities across the UK. It was nice to have a chat with KATE PRICE.
