Volunteer(s) of the Year Award

Across our sector, volunteers are giving up their time to help your organisation. They do it willingly, not for reward, but we think we should celebrate their hard work and the contribution they have made in 2016.


So, if you would like to give a very public show of appreciation to your volunteer(s) this new Volunteer(s) of the Year Award, brought to you in partnership with Association of Independent Museums (AIM), offers just that opportunity.


Designed to be a real boon for those who work so hard to make a difference, this category is free of charge to enter and is open to all museums, galleries gardens, landscapes and heritage visitor attractions across the UK.

Entry Process

The entry process is different to our other  Award categories, you simply need to send your nomination using the template below.  You can either complete this template online or print it out and complete it by hand. Once complete please e-mail it to [email protected] or you can post it to Sara Bowen, Museums + Heritage Awards, The Coach House, Sharman Road, Worcester, WR1 3LA. Deadline for entry is 1st February 2018


You are welcome to nominate a specific individual or an entire team and simply need to tell us what a difference they have made to your museum, gallery or heritage visitor attraction.
