A Celebration of Volunteering - Shining Stars Awards, Volunteering Fair and Entertainment!

Volunteers' Week

National Volunteers Week takes place 1 to 7 June each year and to mark the week Community Action celebrates by hosting the ‘Shining Stars’ awards to recognise the  contribution Derby’s fabulous volunteers make to local communities. This year we have partnered with Derby Homes, Move More Derby and Community Managed Libraries to hold a celebration event combining the awards ceremony with a Volunteering Fair and entertainment!

The event is a great opportunity for voluntary and community organisations to formally recognise and reward the contribution made by volunteer(s) by nominating them for an award. The categories are:

  • Conquering Star
  • Constellation Award
  • Shining Star
  • Rising Star
  • The Community Action Award
  • Brightest Star
  • Active Star
  • Shooting Star
  • Blazing Star
  • Future Star

Click here for the nomination form and full details about each category. Please note that the deadline for nominations is Tuesday 30 April 2019.

All nominations go to an independent awards panel who decide the winners of Shining Stars 2019. Once the winners have been finalised we will contact the nominating organisation to let you know if anyone has won and to invite you, and everyone you have nominated, to the awards ceremony.

This year the ceremony will be held on Tuesday 4 June from 10am to 1pm at St Martin's Church and Community Centre 6 Flint St, Derby DE24 9BH - so put the date in your diary!
