The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen's coronation.
Re:dish was one of a number of charity organisations in Greater Manchester to be granted the award.
The awards are the highest honour given to local volunteer groups across the UK, sometimes called ‘the MBE for volunteer groups’. They are awarded to recognise outstanding work done in social, economic or environmental work in the local community.
A group of volunteers, staff and trustees from Re:dish attended the award ceremony at Gorton Monastery.
