Volunteer of the Year and the Trustee of the Year. These two awards recognise the difficulties faced by charities in raising funds and also the incredibly valuable contributions made by trustees, both are a vital asset to any charities and work tirelessly for their organisations. To nominate a person into these two categories please click here.

Trustee of the Year

Trustees are responsible for ensuring that the charity runs effectively and follows good practice in all relevant areas.  Where a management team is in place the trustee should encourage and provide advice to management and challenge them in a constructive manner.  Trustees are ultimately responsible for the charity and do this role as volunteers.

This award will be given to the trustee who the judges feel demonstrates a significant contribution to their charity and had a major impact in the charity’s ability to benefit its beneficiaries.

Volunteer of the Year

Volunteers make a difference to any charity or community project.  They often work tirelessly doing extraordinary things to help make the lives of others better and the Kent Charity Awards judges would like to reward their commitment.  Volunteers are involved in many activities, such as youth work,  schools, mentoring, arts, drama, community projects, sports projects to name just a few.  So, if you know someone that you feel goes that extra mile please nominate them for this award.
