CLAN is the proud recipient of several awards given in recognition of the work we do throughout our local communities. We are grateful for this recognition not only from the business community but also from the general public and our third sector colleagues.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
CLAN was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2006. It is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities.
Volunteer Friendly Award
In January 2014 CLAN was awarded the Volunteer Friendly Award. This is a quality standard awarded to organisations that show evidence of best practice in working with volunteers. In achieving this award, CLAN had to demonstrate an ethos of fairness and equality and a commitment to provide rewarding volunteering opportunities and to give each volunteer the induction, training and support necessary for them to carry out their volunteer role effectively.
North East Enterprise Trust Alick Buchanan Smith Enterprising Communities Award
CLAN was awarded the Alick Buchanan-Smith Enterprising Communities Award at the Grampian Business Awards for Business Excellence on 26 June 2014. This prestigious award was presented to CLAN in recognition of the contribution we have made to the health and wellbeing of those living with cancer in our community.

CLAN is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB), the independent self-regulatory body for UK fundraising. FRSB works with its member charities, suppliers and the wider charity sector to encourage commitment to and compliance with best practice in fundraising.
