Braintree District Volunteer Awards

We host The Braintree District Volunteer Awards annually along with Community360. The awards celebrate the valuable contribution volunteers make to our district.

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have decided to cancel this year's Braintree District Volunteer Awards. We hope to run the awards again in 2021.


You can nominate anyone who spends time doing something unpaid that benefits individuals or groups or the environment.

This can include volunteering through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action. Your nominee may spend their time

  • fundraising
  • running a sports club
  • looking after the environment
  • organising an event
  • helping around the community

You should read the terms and conditions of the awards before you make a nomination.
