CCLA is delighted to become the Overall Partner for the Charity Awards in 2022. As we emerge ever so tentatively out of the pandemic, there has never been a more fitting time to recognise and honour the endeavours and achievements of charities across the country. These awards celebrate all that is great about the sector – its impact, innovation, resilience, passion and determination – and CCLA is privileged to be able to extend its support for charities through this partnership with Civil Society Media.
