Award criteria and information

The Upper Harbour Volunteer Recognition Programme recognises efforts that often go unnoticed, and helps individuals and/or communities in our local board area.

The programme honours those who give their time, including:

  • individuals of all ages
  • not-for-profit organisations or local community groups that also provide a way for individuals to volunteer.

We will invite all nominees who meet this criteria to a ceremony to receive a certificate recognising their efforts.
