Centre Supporting Voluntary Action works with over 350 volunteer involving organisations across Chelmsford: the city, its villages and South Woodham Ferrers. Our Volunteering Centre brokers thousands of local people wanting to volunteer. Every day we are humbled by the willingness of people to come forward and give their time and energy to support local charities, voluntary and community activity. Volunteers are a formidable force for good which helps to make Chelmsford a great place to live.
In 2014, as part of our 20th Anniversary Celebrations, Chelmsford Centre Supporting Voluntary Action launched five special, one-off, Awards for Voluntary Service to recognise some of the many people who give time so generously for the good of others or to enable money to be raised for charity. The Mayor of Chelmsford agreed to adopt the Award for Outstanding Voluntary Service as a ‘Mayors Award’. Click here to see our 2014 award winners and photographs from our celebration event.

Would you like to acknowledge the outstanding work of your volunteers? Local charity Chelmsford Centre Supporting Voluntary Action is again working with the Mayor’s Office to launch the 2016 Mayor’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to Voluntary Service.
The Awards raise awareness of the thousands of local people who give their time to help others by volunteering and in particular those who have made an exceptional contribution to local voluntary action in the city, its villages and South Woodham Ferrers.
Nominations for this year’s prestigious Mayor’s Award for Voluntary Service Outstanding Contribution to Voluntary Service (any age or activity) are not yet open.
