Empowering People In Communities


Introducing the EPIC Volunteer Awards

A new initiative to recognise and validate the contribution made by volunteers!

The EPIC Awards are open to all volunteers who make a commitment of at least 50 hours, within any 12-month period, with three awards up for grabs:

  • Bronze Award – awarded for 50 hours of volunteering
  • Silver Award – awarded for 100 hours of volunteering
  • Gold Award – awarded for 200 hours of volunteering

These hours can be built up through volunteering with one organisation, or multiple organisations, so long as you keep a record of your hours.

Check out the video below to find out how it all works

Why register for an EPIC Award?

Here are our top reasons for volunteers to get involved:

⭐ Get recognition for your time, commitment, experience and skills

⭐ Recording your hours helps you to focus on a target

⭐ The EPIC Record Book helps to record your time, training courses and skills developed

⭐ Your EPIC Award will look great on your CV and is helpful for job applications and interviews.
