Queens Award for Voluntary Service
Updated: Aug 2, 2021
Sussex Pathways has been honoured with The Queens Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
Sussex Pathways’ extensively trained volunteers work with residents of prisons, preparing them for release into the community, the risk of reoffending is reduced by more than 80% so it works!
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups which benefit their local communities.
Team members of Sussex Pathways will receive the award crystal and certificate from Sir Peter Field, Lord-Lieutenant of East-Sussex later this Summer.
Furthermore, two members of the charity will attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace in May 2022, along with other recipients of this year’s award.
Margaret Carey, MBE JP, Chair of the Trustee’s says,: “ I am absolutely thrilled that the amazing work of our volunteers and staff has been recognised in this way. They show absolute dedication to the task of helping people to change the way they live in the community, and this benefits every one of us”. #thequeensawardforvoluntaryservice #thequeensaward #volunteer #volunteers #volunteering #sussexpathways #sussex #surrey #queensaward
