Now entering its 22nd year, the Charity Awards continues to recognise those charities that are innovative, exemplify best practice, and deliver sustainable benefit to communities and society in general.
“In 2000 I started the Charity Awards to celebrate excellence and now over 15 years later they are needed more than ever to emphasise the vital part the sector has to play in ensuring a fair and more equal society. We should be proud of who we are and what we do.”
Daniel Phelan, Founder of Civil Society Media and The Charity Awards
In previous years, guests have been greeted by a red carpet entrance, drinks reception upon arrival, followed by a three-course meal and then an evening of awards and celebration has begun…
We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Civil Society Media as sponsors of the Charity Awards. The awards celebrate leadership, good governance, innovation and excellence. As investment managers we do everything we can to support the work that the sector does and promoting best practice is an important part of our relationship with charities.
