VAAC is proud to be sponsoring the new Volunteer Friendly Award at this year’s Observer Community Awards!Vols

We are looking for nominations of organisations that really look after their volunteers: where the volunteers are respected, appreciated and made to feel part of the team; where they are offered training opportunities and are able to offer suggestions and make contributions to the way the organisation is run; where they can gain experience and learn new skills; and most-of-all where the volunteers are happy and love what they do!

If all of this sounds like an organisation you know, we want to hear about it!

The Observer Community Awards is a chance to give recognition for all the fantastic work that goes on in our local communities and to celebrate the people that go the extra mile to give their time and help others. The award presentation will take place on December 14, 2015 at Butlins in Bognor Regis.

To nominate the organisation/community group that you think deserves to win this award, contact us for a nomination form on admin@vaac.org.uk.
