Trafford 2019 Volunteer Awards


June 1st - 7th is national Volunteers Week, a time to say thank you to volunteers for their fantastic contribution.

To coincide, on the 1st June, Trafford Council is launching its 2019 Volunteer Awards, to celebrate the outstanding achievements and inspirational contribution that volunteers make in Trafford, and the important role the groups, organisations and businesses play in supporting them.

We are encouraging local residents and businesses to put forward their volunteer heroes, in four categories:

  • Volunteer
  • Young volunteer (under 18)
  • Group or organisation that supports its volunteers
  • Business that supports its employees to volunteer

The closing date for nominations is Sunday 30th June and all nominees will be notified by Friday 5th July.

All nominees will be invited to a presentation with the Mayor of Trafford, Cllr Rob Chilton, at Trafford Live on Sunday 21st July at Trafford Town Hall.
