2024 Soldiering On Awards: Nominations Open

Soldiering On Awards is delighted to announce the opening of its 2024 nominations. Now in its 14th year, the Soldiering On Awards programme recognises and celebrates the incredible accomplishments made by remarkable individuals and organisations from Britain’s Armed Forces Community who have gone above and beyond to serve others.

Nominations are invited across twelve categories, ranging from Family Values and Animal Partnership to Defence Inclusivity, Inspiration, Business, and more. The ‘Healthcare and Rehabilitation Award’, proudly sponsored by Redwood Technologies Group, honours a person or team demonstrating a major commitment and contribution in support of the physical or mental welfare of serving or former members of the British Armed Forces. This support can take the form of healthcare delivery, therapeutic treatment or rehabilitation services.

Dubbed by Jeremy Vine as the ‘best awards ever’, Soldiering On Awards is much more than a one-off ceremony. The year-long celebration fosters positive storytelling and brings together high-profile judges from across the Armed Forces Community. Many hundreds of entrants will be scrutinized and discussed, until three shortlisted finalists per category proceed to the final stages, culminating in a spectacular grand Awards Night, to take place in October 2024.

“Soldering On Awards holds a special place in the nation's heart as we honour and highlight the outstanding achievements of those who have served our country, and those who support the vital work of our Armed Forces” commented Martin Taylor, Co-founder and Deputy CEO at Redwood Technologies Group. “The Healthcare and Rehabilitation Award shines a spotlight on the incredible efforts of individuals and organisations to improve the well-being of services personnel, past and present. These awards provide us with an opportunity to recognise and express our gratitude to those who embody the best British values of resilience and determination.”

“In our 14th year, Soldiering On Awards remains committed to shining a spotlight on remarkable individuals, projects and organisations that exemplify passion and unwavering commitment to progress and excellence, embodying the core values that our Armed Forces are known for,” commented Rt Hon Earl Howe PC, Patron of the Soldiering On Awards. “Many in the community remain unrecognised for their efforts, so I invite everyone to ask themselves: “Who do you know that deserves recognition?" If shortlisted, nominees will gain national exposure, and what’s unique about the Soldiering On Awards is that the nominator is also invited to join in the celebrations at the House of Lords.”

The nomination process is open to everyone, inviting the public, peers, and colleagues to nominate deserving candidates. Nominations are officially open and close on the 2nd of April 2024. Visit the Soldiering On Awards website to submit your nominations and be part of this celebration of excellence within the Armed Forces community. Together, let's honour those who go above and beyond.
