Charities Aid Foundation proud to support 2015 Charity Awards

5 March 2015

The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) is proud to support The Charity Awards 2015, led by Civil Society Media, which are now open for entries.

The awards, which will be sponsored by CAF for the 11th year running, recognise and celebrate the achievements of UK charities and are a showcase for the best work across the charitable sector.

This is the 16th year of the awards, which will culminate in an awards ceremony for those shortlisted on the June 18 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel.

Categories include:

  • Advice, support and advocacy
  • Arts, culture and heritage
  • Children and youth
  • Disability
  • Education and training
  • Environment and Conservation
  • Grant making and funding
  • Healthcare, and medical research
  • International Aid and Development
  • Social Care and Welfare
  • Outstanding achievement

Judging will take place in April and the shortlist will be announced on Civil Society News on Monday 11 May. 

John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, which helps people and businesses support the causes they care about and provides financial services designed for the charitable sector, said: “We are delighted once again to support the Charity Awards as a platform for promoting the best achievements of the vibrant UK charity sector.

“At CAF we are dedicated to supporting the charitable sector and encouraging public understanding of the amazing difference charities make to people and their communities right across the country.

“The Charity Awards gives a wide variety of organisations a chance to share their work, learn from each other and uncover untold new talent.  In this difficult climate, where charity budgets are stretched to the limit and the sector is looking for new and innovative ways to keep up the vital work they’re doing, we need these opportunities to collaborate, share knowledge and celebrate successes more than ever.”

Tania Mason, Group Editor at Civil Society Media, said:  “We are so grateful for the invaluable support that CAF has provided to The Charity Awards since 2005. They have been the major contributor to the Awards for 11 years and we simply couldn’t have run such a high-calibre awards programme and ceremony without them on board. Thanks to their support we are able to give all the shortlisted charities a great night out and put on a wonderful show that is inspiring and entertaining in equal measure. It’s a great example of a successful and sustainable partnership and one that we hope will continue for many more years to come.”

Previous winner Dr Deborah Briggs at the Global Alliance for Rabies Control said: “Winning in the Healthcare and Medical Research category has not only increased recognition of our charity's work in the field of rabies control, but just as importantly, has given the communities we work with a greater sense of pride in the programmes, further encouraging sustainability.”
