A message from the High Sheriff:
Each year the High Sheriff acknowledges the enormous contribution which volunteers make to society through the High Sheriff Awards.
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 and their circumstances can often be difficult because of caring responsibilities or the effects of unemployment on family life. 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.
I look forward to receiving your nomination so that at this year’s awards ceremony there can be a real celebration of the impact of volunteering in West Glamorgan.
