  • Individual Volunteer (over 25 years old)
  • Young volunteer (up to 25 years old)
  • Volunteer team
  • Trustee (individual)

The Mayor's Volunteer Awards were introduced in 2004 under their former name of The Mayor's Annual Community Awards.

This annual scheme is organised by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council in partnership with Voluntary Action Reigate and Banstead (VARB).
