BATIAS to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
BATIAS are delighted to be honoured with this prestigious award for the fantastic work done by our volunteers. Our volunteers work with many of the most disadvantaged in our community, creating opportunities, changing lives and improving communities. We value our volunteers immensely and what makes the award extra special is that our volunteers do not seek recognition, their reward is the positive contribution they make to those who they work with.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate The Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Recipients are announced each year on 2nd June, the anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation. BATIAS Independent Advocacy is one of 241 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year.
Roy Evans, Chair of Trustees says: “we are delighted and very honoured that BATIAS’S work to support and empower those with learning disabilities has been recognised, and I would like pay tribute to the hard work and commitment of our amazing volunteers.”
