Marsh Award for Volunteering in Support of Older People
This Award is run in partnership with Re-engage and recognises the contribution made by volunteers who support and care for older people. The Award acknowledges the commitment made by either an individual or a group of volunteers.
Re-engage volunteers hold monthly tea parties for elderly people, or act as drivers in order to ensure they are able to attend. The groups are lifelines for many elderly people with little support from friends and family.
As well as one national winner, the Award recognises 21 regional winners across the UK from Wales, Scotland, the South East, the South West, London, the North and the Midlands and East Anglia. Nominations for the Award are gathered and judged internally by Re-engage and a shortlist of 7 winners is put forward to the Marsh Christian Trust in order to select the national winner.
