Third Sector Awards

The Third Sector Awards recognise excellence from across the sector.

Their mission is to educate and inspire by showcasing the fantastic work that is taking place in charities across the country. To help us achieve this mission, every entrant will receive feedback from our expert judges about the relative strengthens of their submission and we will provide clear reasons why a charity is shortlisted or wins a coveted Third Sector Award.

The centrepiece of this celebration takes place on 24th September 2015 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. 

This year's Third Sector Awards will also incorporate Britain's Most Admired Charities Awards, Third Sector’s highly coveted set of awards that is determined by the sector itself.
The shortlist for the Most Admired Charity, Most Admired Chief Executive and Celebrity Charity Champion awards will be drawn from nominations from a group of influential figures in the charity sector and the winners determined by a vote by the sector later this year. No nominations can be made for these awards.

Entering the Awards allowed us to celebrate the success of our event and showcase this to the rest of the sector. Winning the award has helped us promote the event as a successful, professional, award-winning activity. It also allows us to highlight that the team and charity have organised sector award-winning events. The Awards help raise the profile of the charity events sector and the events that are organised within that. They also specifically help showcase individual charities, their successes and the individuals behind this
