It is currently impossible to say when the COVID19 situation will allow major social events like the Armed Forces in Wales Awards Gala Dinner to take place. Nevertheless, to be able to stage it at all, it must be planned.

In the current situation, many people are making exceptional contributions, which deserve recognition. The aim of the Armed Forces in Wales Award Scheme is to recognise outstanding contributions by individuals or groups in support of Defence throughout Wales. It also serves to highlight the contribution of the Armed Forces to Welsh society. Nominations for the awards can now be submitted; if the event does not take place this year, all nominations received will automatically be carried forward for next year’s event.

Awards will be made to the nominee that has provided the most outstanding contribution to Defence in Wales within the following categories:

  • The Armed Forces in Wales Award: The individual or group who has provided the most outstanding contribution to the Armed Forces within Wales;
  • The Cadets Award / Youth Support Award: The Individual or group who has most contributed to the cadet or youth movements within Wales;
  • The Forces Sports Award: The individual or team that has contributed the most towards sport within the Armed Forces in Wales;
  • The Covenant Award: Presented to the individual or group that has had the most positive effect on the delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant within Wales.
