The Guardian Charity Awards 2014
Smaller charities tend to be overshadowed by the big players of the voluntary sector. Yet in terms of innovation, flexibility and reach into communities, it’s very often the case that small is beautiful.
The Guardian Charity Awards seek to redress that. For 22 years, we have showcased excellence among small and medium-sized charities and given a much-needed boost to organisations struggling to get the profile and funding they need to move forward. Our entry criteria mean that the big names cannot exert their usual dominance.
The awards offer a priceless leg-up to organisations that are delivering practical solutions to present-day problems, never more important than at a time of continuing austerity in our public services.
As long as the objective of your charity is improving social wellbeing in the UK in its broadest sense, and provided other entry criteria are met, nothing is ruled out.
