THE CHARITY AWARDS 2017

Your success in the spotlight

WHAT ARE THE CHARITY AWARDS?

Are you involved with a UK charity which is making a real difference - but hasn’t received the attention it deserves? Here’s your opportunity to put that right.

As proud sponsors, we want you to take part in 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 2017 has begun its annual search for charities that are shining examples of excellence in their sector.

  • Children and youth
  • Disability
  • Education and training
  • Environment and conservation
  • Grantmaking and funding
  • Healthcare and medical research
  • International aid and development
  • Social care, advice and support

Be the first to find out who made the shortlist by returning here on 10 May.
