The Scottish Charity Awards celebrate outstanding people, projects and organisations. Across 9 categories, the awards bring together organisations that reflect Scotland's vibrant voluntary sector and showcase the difference we collectively make to society. The awards categories are:
Charity of the Year - for an organisation that has had an exceptional year
Employee of the Year - for an employee whose dedication has reaped rewards for their organisation
Community Action - for an outstanding grassroots or community initiative
Campaign of the Year - for a strong awareness or fundraising campaign
Trustee of the Year - for a Board member who really excels
Pioneering Project - for an innovative project that has made a huge difference
Volunteer of the Year - for someone who has demonstrated great dedication to a cause
Digital Citizen - for a ground-breaking digital organisation or project
Climate Conscious - for organisations that are making a positive contribution to the climate change agenda
In 2023, SCVO is particularly keen to receive nominations and applications from organisations and individuals that reflect the diversity of the voluntary sector in its broadest sense: diversity of approach, based on differing life experience, culture, ethnicity, disability, professional or sector background, age or other factors.
It is free for organisations to enter, with a free awards ceremony for finalists. If you would like to nominate an organisation or individual, please fill out this short form by Monday 20 February, and the SCVO team will follow up with them directly to encourage them to apply. If you would like to nominate more than one organisation, please complete a separate form for each.
