VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 Nomination Form

2018 is the Year of Young People and we’re celebrating this by showcasing some of the talent within our region. We’re also changing our format in response to comments we’ve received. This year we’re having a two-tier approach. We’ll be presenting locality awards for each category, the winners of which will be invited to our VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 event where the regional winners will be announced.

The VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 will recognise outstanding volunteers within the Dumfries and Galloway area. Please note individuals, groups or people using the group must be based in the Dumfries and Galloway region.

Your nomination must give a brief outline of the volunteer’s role and what they have achieved through their volunteering. Please highlight what makes them stand out from other volunteers i.e. what makes their contribution, commitment or achievements exceptional? What difference have they have made to your organisation, your service users, the local community? You may include quotes from service users/volunteers/staff.

This award celebrates the contribution that volunteers make towards increasing equality for everyone in Dumfries & Galloway.  We know that many volunteers are involved in activities that help to build D&G as a region where diversity is respected, valued and  everyone feels safe and included.  We’d like to hear about those whose volunteering work makes a real difference in raising awareness, challenging stereotypes and changing culture for the better.
