How to write your nomination

When writing your entry, you will need to know:

  • the nominee’s full details
  • a full description of their action(s)
  • the impact that they have had.

Write your entry with a specific example in mind rather than a list of their tasks and reasons.

When describing why your nominee should receive an award, please consider the following points:


Make sure you describe the circumstances faced by the individual, group, or organisation. For example, the resources available to them, the complexity of injuries or conditions they faced. Other factors could include age, ability, length, and type of first aid given.

Expertise and dedication

Think about their expertise and dedication. This could include:

  • the effect of their actions
  • their demonstration of first aid knowledge and confidence
  • how they champion first aid


Think about the impact that their first aid actions or achievements have had on others and/or the wider community.

Winners quote

'First aid is a really important skill; it's something that we all need. If everyone had that little bit of knowledge, they would have the confidence to save someone's life.'
