The Queen’s Birthday Honours 2020 and Coronavirus (COVID-19) recognition

Nominate someone for an honour or award…

You may be aware the list of national honours, usually announced on the Queen’s official birthday in June, has been delayed until the autumn.

This year, individuals will receive recognition for their exceptional contributions made in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the extraordinary efforts underway to tackle the crisis. When the honours list is published in the autumn, the intention is that it will include some of those who are currently responding to the pandemic.

If you know of someone who has made a significant and exceptional contribution and who meets the criteria below, then please do consider making a nomination for an honour.

In particular, it is for those who have:

  • worked on the frontline of their organisation or in their sector to directly support the most vulnerable members of society and people who have caught COVID-19.
  • provided critical care to COVID-19 patients.
  • made significant innovations to support the vulnerable and those with COVID-19 or their communities and sectors.
  • gone to extraordinary lengths to keep critical services going.
  • volunteered in the community or for service organisations in support of those affected by COVID-19.

You can make a nomination for national honours for those helping communities in this COVID-19 crisis through a special section on the GOV.UK website.

The nomination form has been shortened, but there is no guarantee an honour will be awarded. However, there may be other opportunities to recognise individual’s efforts, which have been so vital in this unprecedented crisis.
