On Thursday 30th July 2015, the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues held the 2015 Jubilee Awards for Service, hosted by The Baroness Massey of Darwen in the House of Lords. The ceremony awarded and recognised 12 public sector award winners for their outstanding service. Award winners included firefighters, NHS workers, educators and those in local government.
The Jubilee Awards for Service is an annual awards programme celebrating the outstanding service of those working in the public sector. The awards recognise and reward individuals who go above and beyond their remit, dedicate their working life to helping others, or who have made a significant contribution to the lives of others through their work. Winners are nominated by grateful colleagues, friends, or members of the public and nominations are judged by an independent panel.
This year, 8 young people were also honoured as part of the Jubilee Awards for Service Youth Awards, run in partnership with Step Up to Serve. These young people have undertaken outstanding practical action in the service of others, including volunteering, campaigning, and fundraising.
Details of the winners and their stories will be available shortly via the Jubilee Awards for Service page, and photos from the ceremony are available in the Media Centre.
