What encouraged you to sponsor the Torfaen Community and Volunteer Awards?

It is a pleasure to support the Torfaen Community and Volunteer Awards. I know many volunteers go above and beyond what is expected of them and initiatives such as the Torfaen Community and Volunteer Awards help us celebrate them and their achievements.

It’s vital we shine a light on the outstanding work of volunteers here in Torfaen. They bring a wealth of experience and skills to projects and initiatives across the borough on a daily basis.

 

Why you’re sponsoring Adult Volunteer of the Year?

Adult Volunteer of the Year highlights the outstanding commitment and dedication of individuals who go over and above to help others. I commend the hundreds of volunteers across Torfaen who selflessly give up their time to help others.

Volunteers play vital roles in the running of groups, projects and organisations who would not be able to function without their help.

 

Why are awards like TCVA important?

Awards ceremonies such as this celebrate the achievements of people and groups who have selflessly given their time to help others. It is important that we recognise those who have gone above and beyond to make a difference here in Torfaen and to thank them.

Why is it important to showcase Torfaen in this way?

It is so important to raise awareness of the fantastic work of local organisations, volunteers and businesses.  Shining a light on those who offer a wide range of help and support, is a unique way to promote how they can help more and more people in Torfaen. Volunteering encourages people to develop new skills, meet new people and ultimately unite communities.

Part of my role includes holding the Chief Constable to account for the delivery of local policing, setting and updating a police and crime plan for the residents of Gwent.
