Shortlist announced for The Charity Awards 2022

11 May 2022 Announcement

A total of 30 projects have been shortlisted for the Charity Awards 2022. 

The Charity Awards is the charity world’s longest-running awards ceremony. It was established by the founder of Civil Society Media, Daniel Phelan, in 2000.

The awards have been judged by an independent panel of 15 charity leaders. There will be a winning charity in each of the ten categories.

The categories are: arts, culture and heritage, campaigning and advocacy, children and youth, disability, education and training, environment and conservation, grantmaking and funding, healthcare and medical research, international aid and development and social care, advice and support. 

The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced at a black-tie dinner on 16 June, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. 

The evening will be hosted by broadcaster and writer Ayesha Hazarika, who will be joined on the night by a host of celebrities, representatives of the shortlisted charities, as well as leaders from Britain’s best known and best-loved charities.

More details about each shortlisted charity’s entry can be found on the Charity Awards website.

Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, said: “The breadth and quality of the work being done by charities across the UK continues to astonish, particularly in light of the challenges faced by the sector over the last couple of years. 

“For 22 years the Charity Awards have been identifying and celebrating the fantastic work that UK charities do. Our rigorous judging process highlights those charities with the most innovative ideas and the most effective approaches to delivering real change.

“The nominees on this year’s shortlist are examples of large and small charities who are truly leaders in their field. I wish the very best of luck to them all.”

Peter Hugh Smith, chief executive at CCLA, partner of the Charity Awards, said: “The Charity Awards celebrate the pinnacle of charitable endeavour and this year’s entries are no exception. CCLA is delighted to support the Awards and to help promote the fantastic work that the sector is doing across the UK.  We wish all the shortlisted charities the very best of luck.”
