With a new year on the horizon, community groups in the Western Isles can recognise the efforts of their adult volunteers through two local awards schemes.

Operated by the Volunteer Centre Western Isles, the Kisimul and Clisham Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate adult community volunteers and their contribution to the islands.

Organisations can request the Kisimul Award for regular or individual volunteers participating in a one-off event.

The Clisham Award recognises volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution or for their long-term commitment.

Applications for the awards can be submitted at any time throughout the year.

Interested community groups are asked to contact their local Volunteer Centre or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to check eligibility and obtain further information.
