Volunteer Awards

Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer Awards 2019

Now Open for Nominations! 

The awards nominations have shown that so many volunteers across our city bring something valuable to the lives of those around them. Our communities are a better place for having them in it. They share their time and energy selflessly, in an age when it is so often said that people are selfish.Organised by Portsmouth Together and Pompey in the Community, the awards are an annual event funded through support from local businesses and organisations.

Do you know anyone who gives their time and energy to help others? Do you think they deserve to be nominated for a volunteer award?

Nominating is easy, it’s a great way to recognise the unsung efforts of the people of Portsmouth, and everyone nominated even if they are not shortlisted will be recognised.

You can nominate online by using the link below, or email/pop in for a paper application form. Nominations can come from anyone, and anyone who volunteers in Portsmouth regardless of age can be nominated.



To recognise and reward the dedication and hard work of Portsmouth’s we are looking for nominations for volunteers in the following categories:
