The Charity Awards

The Charity Awards is Civil Society Media’s annual awards programme held to identify, recognise and reward those organisations doing exceptional work in all areas of charitable activity.

The Charity Awards is a year-round programme that uses Civil Society Media’s portfolio of magazines, reports, events and websites to celebrate and highlight best practice across the sector.  

The Charity Awards are judged by a respected panel of voluntary sector heavyweights, each of them leaders in their own fields with years of experience of leading and managing civil society organisations. The judges assess each entry against our Hallmarks of Excellence – attributes that should be present in any successful project. 

Awards are given out in ten categories and an overall winner is chosen from the winners in each category.

The awards have been designed so that any charity – regardless of their size, location or cause – can enter their project and be in with a chance of winning.
