Our Crohn’s & Colitis UK Volunteer Awards are back!

29 August 2019

Due to the great success of our Volunteer Awards 2018, we will once again be recognising the amazing contribution that people give to Crohn’s & Colitis UK through our various volunteering opportunities. 

The three main awards are based on the Charity’s values. We are looking for nominations for those who have displayed these values in their volunteer role with Crohn’s & Colitis UK. 

Brand new for the Volunteer Awards 2019, we will also be selecting an outstanding overall contributor to our work and an innovative changemaker for our Across the Board and Trailblazer awards. 

It Takes Guts to volunteer and this is your chance to acknowledge those around you who regularly push through their boundaries to achieve great things for everyone affected by Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

Nominations will be shortlisted and finalists will be invited to a special recognition event to kick off the new year. 


To nominate a volunteer, please provide - in no more than 250 words - how the volunteer meets the relevant values category and criteria by sharing examples of the contribution they have made in their role in 2019. 

Our categories are: compassionate, ambitious, stronger together, across the board and trailblazer. 

Nominations are accepted via email: Volunteering Team.
