Do you know someone who has volunteered or given up their own time to give something back to the community? The purpose of the Chiltern District Council (CDC) Community Awards is to help promote and raise the profile of volunteering in the Chiltern District area. Volunteers in our community help improve the quality of life for many people young and old, and also contribute greatly to the sense of community in our towns and villages. It is important that volunteers are recognised and celebrated. All people being nominated must be volunteering their services within the Chiltern District area. Why not nominate someone for one of the following award categories: Group Award, For the group which have voluntarily contributed skills and time to the benefit of a community in Chiltern District; Individual Award – for an individual adult (25 – 65 years old) who has shown commitment and dedication in the giving of time, skills and enthusiasm to the benefit of a community in Chiltern District; Older and Bolder Award – For an individual over the age of 65 years who has made a major contribution to the community in Chiltern District through volunteering; Young Volunteer Award – for a young person up to the age of 25 years old who has provided time and talent to the benefit of a community in Chiltern District; Business Award – to reward the best example of a volunteering partnership between business and community groups; Long Service Award for those volunteers who have served a community organisation within Chiltern District with at least 20 years significant service; Young Carers Award – the contribution made by a young person up to the age of 25 years old to support a family member in need of special care.
