Saltire Awards

Engage Renfrewshire & Saltire Awards

Saltire Awards are supported by the Scottish Government.  They formally recognise the commitment and contribution of young volunteers between the ages of 12-25 years.  The Saltire Awards enable young volunteers to record skills, experience and learning gained through successful volunteering opportunities whether that be a ‘one off’, a more regular volunteering opportunity or an unpaid work placement.

The Awards are split into four sections:

  1. The Saltire Challenge    (a one off event to get you started)
  2. The Saltire Approach     (10 and 25 hours)
  3. The Saltire  Ascent         (50, 100, 200, 500 hours)
  4. The Saltire Summit         (200 plus exceeded expectation)

Engage Renfrewshire actively promotes Saltire Awards across Renfrewshire. We promote Saltire Awards via schools, youth groups, Saltire Ambassadors, partner organisations, volunteering organisations plus social media.

Not only do we promote Saltire Awards, we help youth organisations develop suitable volunteering opportunities, print off the Saltire Certificates and peer assess Saltire Summit Nominations via Renfrewshire’s Saltire Ambassadors.  We also help organise events and presentations.
