Sunday Telegraph British Volunteer Awards

Following the success of the Olympic and Paralympic Games volunteer programme, the Sunday Telegraph and Waitrose have launched the British Volunteer Awards.

In order to reward them and raise awareness of the good work volunteers do already, The Sunday Telegraph has decided to launch these awards.

Most crucially, your nominations are needed for individuals who have really made a difference to your community.

You can nominate anyone over the age of 18 who has volunteered in Britain by 30 October. Each of 20 winners will receive £500 for their voluntary organisation
