Wednesday 22 May

18:00 - 20:00

Save the date! This event is all about you.

The Volunteering Awards gives us the chance to celebrate our vast volunteering community here at UCL and thank each and every one of you for the incredible contributions you’ve made.

If you’ve volunteered this year, join us for an evening of celebration, food and to collect your certificate. There’ll even be prizes for those of you who’ve gone that extra mile.

Book your place

If you’re a UCL volunteer, you can now book your place at the Awards and request your volunteering certificate.  The dress code for this event is smart, so no jeans or trainers please!

If you’re unable to make the Awards, but would still like to request a certificate, that’s fine too! Just complete the form and indicate you’re unable to attend.

Staff and representatives from our partner organisations are also more than welcome to join us. Please book your place via our Staff and Partner Registration form.

You will be able to book your place and request certificates until 10:00 on 17 May.


While every volunteer is presented with a certificate, there are prizes for those who deserve extra recognition.

Individual Awards

We have four Individual Awards up for grabs this year. Winners will received a personalised certificate and a £50 Amazon voucher.

You can nominate for the following: Most Committed Volunteer, Biggest Impact, Best Volunteer Moment and Wildcard.

Student-Led Project Awards

Calling all Project Leaders! Make sure your Project is recognised for all the fantastic things it has achieved this year.

Nominate your Project for our Project of the Year Award for formal recognition, a certificate and trophy.

If you’re brand new this year, don’t worry! We also have a Best Newcomer Award for just that.

Organisation Award

The charities you volunteer with dedicate lots of time and effort into ensuring you have the best experience possible.

Nominate the charity you volunteer with for our Organisation of the Year Award to thank them for their support.

We’re looking for eight Champions to share their volunteering stories. If you’d like to be one of our Champions and a face of Volunteering 2019, just let us know.
