High Sheriffs Awards

Each year the High Sheriff acknowledges the enormous contribution which volunteers make to society through the High Sheriff Awards.There are so many volunteers who are making a real difference to communities and the lives of others by giving up their time freely and without expectation of reward.  The High Sheriff awards provide an opportunity for the selfless dedication of our volunteers to be acknowledged and celebrated.

Many young people devote significant amounts of time to volunteering, sometimes within circumstances where their own personal life can be difficult.  A High Sheriff award which recognises the impact of their volunteering can give young people confidence in their abilities and inspire the next generation.

The contribution of adults who support young people is also recognised through the awards which can be given to individuals or groups.

There are therefore two categories of award:

•     For adults VOLUNTARILY helping young people
•     For young people VOLUNTARILY helping their local community

These awards are an effective way of recognising the unsung heroes in our community.  Please note that nominees must be working voluntary in the community for an extended period of time, either with young people or be a young person themselves.
 
Your assistance in promoting the awards within Neath Port Talbot and Swansea would be greatly appreciated.
 
The awards are normally presented in mid-March with a closing date for applications in mid-February.  If you know of anyone that you would like to nominate for an award, applications forms can be downloaded and printed from the High Sheriff’s website:  www.crimebeatwestglam.org.uk
 
The forms (which are also available in Welsh)are quite simple to complete and simply requires a maximum of 250 words to explain why your nominee should receive an award.

Completed nomination forms should be forwarded to:

The last High Sheriff’s Award ceremony was held on Saturday 10th March 2018 at the Baglan Community Church in Port Talbot.

The awards were presented by the High Sheriff, Louise Fleet JP, and the day proved to be a great celebration of individual, group and organisations’ voluntary achievements.
