2024 marks the 10th anniversary of the Points of Light award. Since April 2014, over 2,300 people have been named ‘Points of Light’, highlighting an array of innovative volunteering; from fundraising and heritage work to supporting vulnerable people in the community and tackling issues including loneliness and mental health.

DCMS welcomes nominations for inspirational individuals for Points of Light awards.

These nominations are given daily by the Prime Minister to outstanding volunteers in the UK, and the Department is looking for those who have made a real difference to their communities, across all ages and backgrounds.
