SALTIRE AWARDS

EAST LOTHIAN

The Saltire Awards are the Scottish Government’s way of celebrating, recognising and rewarding the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers in Scotland, aged between 12 and 25.

 

Young people gain nationally recognised certificates, signed by Scottish Government Ministers, for the different amounts of volunteering they do.

The Saltire Awards are the Scottish Government’s way of celebrating, recognising and rewarding the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers in Scotland, aged between 12 and 25.

 

Young people gain nationally recognised certificates, signed by Scottish Government Ministers, for the different amounts of volunteering they do.

This is a great way to start. Volunteer in a one-off team event to get a taste of volunteering, see if it’s for you and make a real difference to your community. 

Ready to give volunteering a go? The Approach gives you the recognition for the regular volunteering you undertake whether it be in the community, with a charity, at school or part of a youth group. 

Taking volunteering to the next level. Develop your skills and strengths through placements and make a longer commitment to volunteering. 

Volunteering above and beyond expectations! This Award is for an outstanding contribution to volunteering. It is awarded to those who have completed at least 200hrs and have exceeded expectations.

The Saltire Awards aim to deliver a programme designed for young people by young people.  Young people who have achieved the ‘Ascent’ can apply to become Saltire Ambassadors.

Ambassadors will be involved in the Saltire Awards on every level from promotional and publicity activities through to decision making roles on the Summit Award panel, as well as advisory groups and committees.   Full training and support for these roles will be provided giving Ambassadors the opportunity to further develop and build their skills.
