This is a local award used by any commissioner to recognise youth members, volunteers and non-members for their contribution to the Scouts.

This is a local award used by any commissioner or Team UK to recognise youth members, volunteers and non-members for their contribution to the Scouts.

This award carries no set criteria, is shown by a purple knot and is worn on the uniform in the same location as other volunteer awards.

Uploading award to Compass

For volunteers, once a Commissioner's Commendation has been awarded, the details of the award should be submitted to UK Headquarters using the Commissioner's Commendation - Compass upload form so their Compass record can be updated.

Awards will be uploaded to Compass once a quarter (in January, April, July and October).
