The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2018

Dear Alan Bell, The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety

I am writing to inform you that The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety was nominated for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2018. This award was created by The Queen in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.

The nomination received for The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2018 represents a tremendous achievement for your organisation. Everyone involved, and particularly your volunteers, should feel immensely proud of the recognition that a nomination for this Award represents.

The work your group does for the community was very much admired by the Independent Assessment Committee.

Unfortunately, given the large number of nominations and the very high standards throughout, I am sorry to say that in the end The Scottish Centre for Personal Safety was not among those selected to receive the Award this year. However, on behalf of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Team, please convey to your volunteers and other staff, our warm appreciation of the excellent work they do and of the enormous benefit it represents to the local community.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Team are pleased to recognise the value of your work and the significance of your nomination for this Award.

Yours sincerely,
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Team
