Recognised for outstanding best practice
The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly-regarded excellence recognition scheme. The shortlisted charities were judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice from which other organisations can learn. They had to demonstrate rigour in project planning and measurement of results, and were evaluated against ten ‘hallmarks of excellence’ including leadership, innovation, impact measurement, accountability and sustainability. The category winners will be announced at a ceremony and dinner on Thursday, 9 June.
Tania Mason, editorial director at Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Camfed on making the highly-coveted shortlist. She said, “We had a record number of entries this year, and the standard was particularly high, so Camfed should be very proud to have made the shortlist. The rigorous judging process ensures that only the very best-run charities make it through.”
John Low, chief executive of Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), overall partner of the Charity Awards, said, “CAF exists to support the amazing work of charities. Anyone looking to see some of the impressive ways in which charities make a difference would only need to take a look at the shortlisted nominees for this year’s Charity Awards.”
