Would you like to do the Honours?

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised for their valuable work whether voluntary, in the community or within their career? Has someone gone the extra mile over and above their day job? Then why not consider nominating them for a UK Honour?

Perhaps they’ve demonstrated innovation, entrepreneurship or philanthropy.  Have their fundraising efforts had a positive effect in their local or wider community?  Have they achieved great things against the odds?

Any and all of these achievements will be considered when honours are awarded.   To ensure your nominee has what it takes to make it all the way,  have they;

  • made a positive difference to their community or field of work?
  • improved the life of those less able to help themselves?
  • gone the extra mile over and above their day job?
  • made a sustained voluntary or charitable commitment?
  • changed things for the better, with an emphasis on achievement?

 

Nomination is a simple process which the Protocol and Honours team can guide you through.

There are two Honours rounds each year:  at New Year and The Queen’s  Birthday. The Honours system is inclusive of all UK residents active in their fields of interest, however we are particularly keen to ensure diversity and equality are embodiments of the honours process and therefore we are eager to receive nominations for ethnic, disabled or female candidates for all levels of award.

Advice and guidance is available from protocolandhonours@gov.scot and more information can also be found at www.gov.uk/honours
