Our team at CVS Falkirk would like to celebrate the wonderful volunteers and community members who do so much for communities across Falkirk and District, during the last few years and beyond. While we’re committed to recognising their efforts every day, Volunteers’ Week (Wednesday 1st June – Tuesday 7th June) presents the ideal opportunity to highlight the variety of local volunteering, the time and effort given by the unsung heroes who give back to their communities – not for their own benefit, but for other people.
As a result, we’re not only bringing back our Volunteer Awards and Celebrating Volunteering Certificates, but – brand new for 2022 – we’ll be holding the very first Volunteers’ Week “Picnic in the Park!” in Falkirk!
We’ll also be announcing even more fun things to do and celebrate volunteering in Falkirk, closer to the time.

We’d like to invite local people, organisations and groups to nominate the volunteers they think deserve recognition for their exceptional efforts. The winner for each category will be chosen by an independent panel and will receive a surprise gift to enjoy, with prizes donated by local businesses.
The Award categories for 2022 are:
- Volunteer of the Year
- Young Volunteer of the Year
- Innovative Volunteer Award
- Community Volunteer Award
- Volunteer-Involving Organisation of the Year Award
The deadline for nominations to the awards is 11:59pm on Sunday 1st May.
If you’d like to nominate one of your volunteers, or if someone in your community deserves special thanks for their volunteering efforts, or for helping out and you’d like to say thank you – please NOMINATE SOMEONE FOR THE VOLUNTEER AWARDS 2022 BY CLICKING THIS LINK.
