Get an Award
Are you aged 12 – 25? Whether you're already volunteering or just thinking about it, The Saltire Awards are for you!
There are four different types of Award to recognise different levels of volunteering:
- The Challenge which recognises people starting out their volunteering journey by taking part in a team challenge.
- The Approach which recognises people who have started regular volunteering, with certificates awarded after 10 and 25 hours have been completed.
- The Ascent for those who have made a longer commitment of 50, 100, 200 or 500 hours.
- The Summit for those who have made an outstanding contribution to volunteering.
By creating a My Saltire account online, you can record your volunteering hours, highlight the learning and skills you’ve gained and apply for an Award.
Having a Saltire Award is a great addition to your CV. You also can also earn up to 3,000 Young Scot Reward Points with each Award.
Aged 13 or over?
Aged under 13?
Unfortunately we cannot currently register you online for the Saltire Awards. This is because data protection laws mean we need to get a parent or guardian’s permission.
To get started, you should contact your local Third Sector Interface (TSI) who can help you apply for a Saltire Award.
If you’ve already completed enough hours to get an Award, you can send them this registration form and have it signed by a parent or guardian
