Nominate a Young Volunteer for a Saltire Summit Award

Nominations are open to you to nominate a young person who has made a difference to your organisation or within your community.

Do you know a young person who has made an outstanding contribution to volunteering in their local area? Do they stand out from the rest, go above and beyond and exceed all expectations? Then why not nominate them for a Summit Award?

Young volunteers must be:

  • Resident in Scotland
  • Aged between 12-25
  • Nominated by either: the organisation they volunteer for, their school, college or University or local Saltire delivery office (or Third Sector Interface)
  • Not a previous Summit Award winner


Nominations can be made using this form [scroll down]and submitted to your local TSI, your local Saltire delivery office. Nominations will then be considered and peer assessed by your local Summit Panel, made up of young volunteers. Summit Panels generally meet 2-3 times every year and closing dates for nominations for each meeting can be obtained from your local TSI (details can be found on our Contact Us page)

When making a nomination, please tell us about:

  • The volunteering role the young person undertakes within your organisation
  • What difference have they made and what impact has their volunteering had, both on themselves and others?
  • How they stand out from other volunteers, what makes them exceptional?
  • In what ways do they show their commitment to the role/your organisation?

You can also contact your local coordinator, Catherine Patterson  for more information. DEADLINE end July.

Clubs in Crisis Fund

Clubs in Crisis Fund
Grants up to £2,021 are available to support sports clubs and organisations that deliver sport for development to recover from the pandemic’s impact and continue their work to achieve social outcomes through sport.

Community Ownership Fund

From summer 2021 community groups will be able to bid for up to £250,000 matched-funding to help them buy or take over local community assets at risk of being lost, to run as community-owned businesses through the UK Community Ownership Fund.  Bids will be accepted from all communities across the UK. In most circumstances, bids should be made from community and voluntary organisations with formal governance in place, such as a Community Trust.  Projects should be focused on place-based assets or amenities, which are important to the local community, build connections between people and foster a sense of pride in the local area – but are at risk of being lost without community intervention. There will be an emphasis on ensuring the asset or amenity can be sustainable in community ownership.
