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.

Community Spirit (adults over 25) –This award will celebrate and recognise local people and groups who go that extra mile. They carry out practical activities in their local community, these activities can be anything from planting and grass cutting or running their community halls and space - anything that makes their community a great place to live. The award is for those people and groups that use their initiative to carry out improvements to their local environment, for example, summer planting, running a great community space, keeping the area safe and tidy or assisting others in inclement weather. It is for individuals or groups who have an exceptional attitude, commitment or impact in giving their time to help their community.
