Programme Outline: The Saltire Awards are designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of young people volunteering in Scotland. The Saltire Awards enable volunteers aged 12-25 to gain new skills and practical experience through volunteering placements provided by local and national voluntary agencies. Supported by the Scottish Government, Saltire Awards have three sections – Team Challenge Awards, the Accumulative Hours Award, and the Summit Award – and achievement is recognised in the form of Saltire Award certificates and Young Scot reward points.

This is a flexible programme for young people aged 12-25 and is delivered as part of our core volunteering development support programme.

Additional Information: VAER can assist young people to find appropriate volunteering roles which are eligible for SALTIRE. Volunteering within the private sector may also be eligible.
