UK honours and Queen's Badge of Honour

We invite you to suggest people for these honours and we will share your nomination with our national awards panel. If we agree that someone should be put forward for a national award, we will get back to you to ask for more information. We will also handle the process with the government - you just need to help us start the process by making the nomination.

UK national honours are reviewed by the government and awarded twice a year.

The Queen's Badge of Honour is the Red Cross’s highest honour, and only 30 people may hold it at any one time.

As part of the nomination form for a Red Cross award we ask for contact details from each nominee. This enables us to send an acknowledgement and let your child know their nomination has been received. We might also need to use it to contact nominators should we have any questions about the nomination. Please see our privacy statement on the nomination page. " If you are happy for your child to submit their own contact details please can you add the wording "I give parental consent for the British Red Cross to receive and hold my child’s contact details for the purposes of submitting a nomination" and add your name. Alternatively, you can substitute in your contact details if you prefer. Thank you very much for supporting your child to recognise someone who they think deserves a Red Cross award.
