The King and Queen Consort will mark their Coronations by celebrating inspiring volunteers who make far-reaching and positive differences in their local communities by introducing The Coronation Champion Awards.


Her Majesty, The Queen Consort, is a passionate and long-standing advocate of volunteering, and the Royal Voluntary Service is organising the awards to acknowledge the contributions of volunteers across the UK. They will commend outstanding volunteers from all communities and aim to inspire others to explore what volunteering has to offer.

There are eight categories of awards:

  • Supporting older people
  • Supporting young people and children
  • Crisis and welfare
  • Community
  • Sports, culture and heritage
  • Health and care
  • Sustainability and the environment
  • Animal welfare

Anyone can nominate a volunteer they know for an award. Judges will also be on the lookout to celebrate rising stars as ‘Young Coronation Champions’ (aged 14 – 18). 500 Coronation Champions will be announced before the Coronation weekend.

Visit to nominate a volunteer or to find out more. Please note that nominations for this competition will close on 2 April.
