Hard of Hearing Volunteers Champion Awards

The Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) is launching their annual Volunteer Award Scheme.

The Volunteer Champion Awards recognise volunteers who make an exceptional contribution to RNID’s work to improve the lives for hard of hearing people.

A spokesperson said: “At RNID, we believe in a world where deafness or hearing loss do not limit or determine opportunity. To realise this, RNID relies on its volunteers. Our volunteers embody the values that we hold so highly and to show our appreciation, we are launching our annual Volunteer Award Scheme.

“In 2011, we will be hosting both regional and national awards and we want you to nominate the individuals who you believe make a real difference.”

The awards are open for nominations from 3rd January and will close on 31st March, with the actual award ceremony taking place in early June.

Categories to enter include;

  • Champions the cause – remembers at all times that RNID strives to create a world where hearing loss does not limit or determine opportunity and where people value their hearing.
  • Builds trust – creates an environment of trust through communicating in an open and honest way.
  • Inspires leadership – leads by example and encourages leadership in others.
  • Promotes teamwork – promotes collaboration and teamwork across RNID.
  • Champions the brand – makes the most of opportunities to gain positive exposure for RNID.
  • Delivers results – provides a service that meets or surpasses the expectations of internal and external customers.

They are also awarding the Lifetime Achievement in Volunteering award.
