Volunteer Impact Awards
Do you know someone who's made a huge impact volunteering for us? Show your appreciation by nominating them for an Impact Award.
Every day our volunteers make a huge difference to people with MS.
Whether it's offering emotional support, shaping how we work, campaigning for change or raising vital funds, volunteers are central to everything we do.
Our Impact Awards shine a spotlight on their amazing contributions and the impact they have on people affected by MS.
How to nominate a volunteer for an Impact Award
Volunteers, staff members and anyone who uses our services can nominate a volunteer for an Impact Award.
Just complete the nomination form to tell us who you want to nominate and why.
And remember - no volunteer contribution is too big or too small to be recognised.
To help you with your nominations, we've put together six Impact Award categories. When you complete the nomination form you'll be asked to choose which of these award categories you want to nominate the volunteer for. You can choose more than one category.
Impact award categories
Supporting and empowering: For going the extra mile to support people with MS, helping them to live well and face the future with more confidence
Fundraising: For inspiring efforts to raise money for us, helping us get closer to our vision of a world free from the effects of MS
- Sharing skills and expertise: For outstanding contributions to the development and delivery of our work. And making sure people living with the effects of MS are at the heart of everything we do
- Informing: For showing extraordinary dedication to raising awareness about MS and giving people affected by MS the information they need to live well
- Connecting: For building networks, creating partnerships, and bringing people together to help make sure no one has to face MS alone
- Influencing: For speaking up for the MS community, and bringing about change at local or national level
What happens next?
Every nomination is assessed by a panel of volunteers who meet four times a year (at the end of each quarter).
If the volunteer you nominate is successful, we’ll award them an Impact Awards certificate and badge.
Our Impact Awards event
Everyone who receives an Impact Award will be considered for further recognition at our brand new annual Impact Awards event. This virtual awards ceremony will be live streamed on our YouTube and Facebook channels at 7pm on Wednesday 5 October.
It'll be hosted by BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills who's one of our Ambassadors and there'll be other celebrity guests. We'll celebrate volunteers who made a big impact in our six Impact Award categories over the last couple of years.
Please join us so you can celebrate our volunteers and the ways they're helping people affected by MS.
The deadline for nominations is Sunday 21 August 2022.
