You would be forgiven for missing the launch of a redesigned Saltire Awards website in March which got overshadowed by the UK going into lockdown. Here are the key changes.

The Awards are now more self-managing. Volunteers are connected to their Volunteer Managers by email. When the volunteer reaches a certificate milestone, the Volunteer Manager automatically receives an email requesting that they verify the hours. After this, the volunteer can then access a Digital Certificate which they can download and also print.

Similarly, Groups who manage volunteers now have access to the website and can create and print certificates for their volunteers. This is being phased in and a handful of groups have already tried this out.

We will continue to be available for printing certificates for individuals or groups as the need arises.
