Honorary awards are given to those whose nationality is not British yet who have contributed in equal measure to British society.

Making a difference to their community or field of work
Enhancing the United Kingdom's reputation
Long term voluntary service
Innovation and entrepreneurship
Changing things with and emphasis on achievement
Improving life for people less able to help themselves
Displaying moral courage
British Honours are awarded on merit, for exceptional achievement or service. Those receiving their badge or medals from the Lord-Lieutenant will have been notified of their award in the New Year's Honours list or the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
