Saltire Awards


Celebrating and recognising the volunteering achievements of young people in Scotland

Saltire Awards is the Scottish Government’s national youth volunteer awards. They celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers in Scotland, aged between 12 and 25. Saltire Awards is delivered in each local authority area by the local Third Sector Interface (TSI). They provide support and assistance on achieving and accessing the Saltire Awards. 

Last year we gave out 27,000 certificates!

“I used my (Saltire Awards) volunteer diary to help make job applications and my certificates helped to show my new employer what I could do…”


“I didn’t know what do to with my career – my volunteering experiences have helped me decide what to do next and Saltire helped me demonstrate my commitment.”


“I feel proud to see the hours I have achieved.”
