Charities shortlisted for the 2023 Charity Awards announced

Now in its 24th year, Civil Society Media’s Charity Awards recognises innovative charities that exemplify best practices and deliver sustainable benefits to communities and society. The charities shortlisted for an award in 2023 have just been announced.

Awards can celebrate individuals who’ve gone above and beyond, or recognise whole organisations that have achieved great things together. But whatever category you decide to enter, you’ll reap the rewards.

Entering (and winning) awards can achieve the following.

o Boost Morale.
o Reveal insights into your work.
o Increase exposure.
o Validate your work.
o Showcase the sector, and
o Help attract additional funding.

Civil Society’s Charity Awards is the charity world’s longest-running, biggest and best-known awards ceremony. This year’s charities have been judged by an independent panel of charity leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.   

The 10 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 Wednesday 7th June 2023, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
