The Slough Voluntary Sector Awards celebrate the achievements of local voluntary and community groups in Slough. These Groups make a huge contribution to the community and are an important part to what the government terms Civil Society.
The first event took place in 2012, to coincide with Slough Council for Voluntary Service’s 75th Anniversary and was praised by the Mayor at the time, Cllr. Chrissie Small. She said, “Congratulations and thank you for arranging a fabulous evening, I will remember it as one of the highlights of our mayoral year.”
This Year – 2019
The nomination process commenced in June and the deadline for submissions was Friday 29th July. So, if you know of a fantastic voluntary group or Charity or someone who gives their all to their volunteering role, don’t forget to nominate them next year!
The Awards ceremony took place on Friday 15th November. All those shortlisted received a certificate on the night and the overall winners in each category will received a trophy.
Slough Voluntary Sector Awards are organised by Slough Council for Voluntary Service (Charity No. 1069086)

It was a fantastic evening — Vital were very honoured to sponsor and present an award. It was wonderful to share a table with other business owners and make valuable connections over the course of the evening. We could really see our contribution during the evening in recognising the success of local voluntary organisations.
