 Charity Excellence Awards

The Charity Excellence Awards aim to highlight and reward excellence within the charity sector. The categories reflect the full spectrum of those who work within the sector in charities big and small, from trustees to fundraisers, members of the finance team to your corporate partners.  

Congratulations to all the 2021 Finalists!


2021 People's Choice Award

Select your favorite shortlisted finalist from the 2021 Awards categories listed. The entry with the most votes will be awarded the 2021 People's Choice Award. 

The Charity Excellence Awards are all about celebrating excellence across the sector. Even though most of the award winners are selected by a Judging panel perhaps the most meaningful award is the People’s Choice Award as it reflects the voice of the entire charity community.

The Finalist with the most votes wins and will be declared along with other winners during the online announcements of the 2021 Charity Excellence Awards starting from the 30th September.

We hope that in the end these awards reflect extraordinary work being undertaken by the organisations we were looking at, work that reflected the real talent and commitment that marks our sector out. Getting the message out, maintaining the profile, developing sustainable partnerships – these are challenging but transformative tasks. These awards, I hope in the end, go some way to honour the huge contribution the community and voluntary sector makes to the wider community.

— Fergus Finlay, Chairman of the Judging Panel (2019 & 2020)
