We planned to present our awards at the Scottish Parliament in September. However, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, our awards will now be a virtual event. We want to hear how your volunteers are overcoming the Coronavirus to share their experiences with other projects.

Winning projects will be presented with £250 for their project, a certificate, a glass award, and a £30 gift voucher for their volunteer. All nominees will receive a certificate acknowledging their contribution to getting more Scots active.
