These individuals will have shown leadership by creating opportunities and educating their peers.

Significant Personal Achievement

Celebrating a volunteer who has overcome significant personal difficulties to volunteer with Peabody and has made a big impact as a result.

This could be someone who has gained confidence, found a new path in life or has shown great courage or determination.

Enterprising Communities

Recognising the contributions of volunteers, whether they're from our community partner organisations, micro-volunteers, management committees, or if they're residents.

They will have enhanced their communities by supporting others, or they may have supported an activity which had a positive impact.

Lifetime Achievement

Recognising a truly exceptional volunteer who has gone above and beyond what is expected of them to make a difference to Peabody's work or to other people's lives over the last year.

Volunteer Group of the Year

A volunteer group or committee who has brought communities together in a new way, for example through intergenerational work, volunteering or cultural integration.

Volunteer of the Year

The panel of independent judges will choose the "Volunteer of the Year" from all the nominations submitted.
