EYST Wales are
honoured to be a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Volunteering Award. As one of the 20 national charities awarded, we are humbled to have been recognised for our work - in particular, the support we provide to 16-25 year olds across Wales.
This is a one-off award created to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee and 20 years of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS). We understand that the award has been personally approved by His Majesty The King following a judging process. We are therefore aware of the prestige this comes with and are committed to continuing the service we provide to young people and communities, values EYST Wales was built upon.
EYST Founder, Momena Ali says, ‘Since its inception, EYST built its foundation on volunteering, and without it, we would not be where we are today. We would like to thank the Jubilee Awards as well as our volunteers for this honorary recognition’.
After 17 years of service, we note that this work would not be possible without our growing team of staff, volunteers, and Board of Trustees, and not least, the support of our service users and wider community. We offer our full gratitude and share this award with everyone who has been part of the EYST journey so far. Thank you.
