Saltire Awards for Covid-19 youth volunteering 💖 🙌
Great news! We want to ensure that we recognise and support the great efforts of young people helping in their communities, many of whom won’t have volunteered before, and as such Saltire Awards have relaxed the rules on informal volunteering during the Covid-19 crisis.
Young people (aged 12-25) can claim awards up to 100 hours’ Saltire Award certificates for Covid-19 related volunteering, for example things like helping neighbours, people self-isolating in local communities, being involved with local mutual aid groups etc. The volunteering must take place between 23/3/20 and 31/8/20 (or whenever lockdown/social distancing measures are relaxed, this will be kept under review)
