Do you know an inspirational animal?

With nominations closing at midnight on the 30th September, there are just a couple of days left for you tell us who you think deserves a Soldiering On Award. Click here to nominate!

We’ve received loads of very worthy nominations already, but it would be a shame for any Cobseo Member to miss the chance to nominate a person or organisation that you think deserves the recognition of winning, or being named a finalist, in these prestigious awards. If your nominee is named as a Finalist, you’ll be invited to join them at a special Finalists’ Champagne and canapés reception at the House of Lords!

Here’s a couple of categories that you might not have thought about…

1. Animal Partnership

We are particularly seeking extra nominations in the Animal Partnership category. So, do you know of a four-legged friend that has made a huge difference to someone’s life? Or perhaps you’re aware of an organisation that uses animals to aid the recuperation of military personnel – such as our 2017 winner, Horseback UK.

2. Community Impact Business Award

Do you know anyone who has started a business that has a made a real impact on the Armed Forces Community? Last year’s “Community Impact” Award was won by a company called Sporting Force Ltd, which works with professional football clubs to provide work placements and courses for ex-military personnel.  This is just one example – who do you know that’s business-spirited?

If you have already nominated someone, thank you so much! We’ve been asked whether it’s allowed to nominate more than one person or organisation – and the answer is YES! Absolutely! Please feel free to nominate as many deserving people as you like.

If you have registered to put forward a nomination but not had a chance to complete your application, thank you too! We are delighted that you have taken the trouble to consider someone for recognition. You now have just a couple of days to complete your nomination.

If you have any questions about the nomination process, please email the Soldiering On Awards team at info@soldieringon.org.

Nominations are open until midnight on 30th September, so click here to nominate someone you think deserves being honoured with a Soldiering On Award.
