Scottish Charity Awards

The Scottish Charity Awards are back for 2018, and we want you to tell us which Scottish charities and individuals had been the best, most innovative and effective during the past year!

There are eight award categories – Charity of the Year, Charity champion, Demonstrating digital, Pioneering project, Terrific trustee, Leading light, Celebrating communities and Cracking campaign – with the winners to be decided by our panel of judges and announced at our awards ceremony on June 14th at the EICC in Edinburgh.

All finalists will then be entered into the running for the People’s Choice Award (sponsored by Charities Aid Foundation), giving you the chance to vote for your favourite finalist to win!

We had an overwhelming response last year, with hundreds of applications and votes cast for those who make a big difference in their communities. So if you know a charity or individual that deserves an award for the amazing and life-changing work they do, apply today! The closing date for applications is 5pm on 29 March 2018.
