Commonwealth Points of Light

Her Majesty The Queen

CHOGM 2018

Her Late Majesty The Queen, as Head of the Commonwealth, recognised individual volunteers across the 54 Commonwealth nations for the difference they make in their communities and beyond.

One outstanding volunteer from each of these countries was recognised with Commonwealth Points of Light awards running up to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, April 2018. Following the success of this programme, Her Late Majesty The Queen decided to continue awarding one volunteer from each Commonwealth country every week.

The daily Points of Light award recognises outstanding individual volunteers - people who are making a change in their community.
