Introducing The All-New EPIC Awards – Perfect for students


As part of Volunteer NI, we are excited to launch the all-new EPIC Awards, an award scheme that recognises and validates the contribution made by volunteers.

Empowering People In Communities

EPIC (Empowering People In Communities) is open to volunteers of all ages and from all types of volunteering. To qualify for an EPIC Award, volunteers must make a commitment of at least 50 hours, within any 12 month period. These hours can be gained through volunteering with one organisation, or with multiple organisations simultaneously.

The Awards

There are three levels of EPIC Award:

  • Bronze Award – 50 hours of volunteering
  • Silver Award – 100 hours of volunteering
  • Gold Award – 200 hours of volunteering


Get Involved

Are you a volunteer who would like to receive an award? Chat to your organisation and ask them to register, or get in touch with us and send us the details of your organisation so that we can reach out. Contact Martin on 028 8224 0772 or email
