Saltire Awards are the new Scottish awards designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of youth volunteering aged 12 – 25 to voluntary organisations.
Supported by the Scottish Government the Saltire Awards enable young volunteers to record the skills, experience and learning gained through successful volunteering placements provided by local and national voluntary agencies.
The Awards are split in to four sections – The Challenge, The Approach, The Ascent and The Summit and achievement is recognised in the form of Saltire Award certificates and Young Scot reward points.
Saltire Awards are designed to encourage, enable and reward youth volunteering and to make it easy for organisations to support young people to take part.
