Applications for the 2021 Scottish Charity Awards are now open.
Organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the awards celebrate the vital work carried out by Scotland’s third sector, with third sector groups and organisations, as well as individual people, welcome to nominate or apply.
Reflecting the sector’s efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns, there are 9 new and revamped categories:
- Employee of the Year
- Trustee of the Year
- Community Action
- Campaign of the Year
- Charity of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Digital Citizens
- Pioneering Project
- Climate Conscious
The winners will be decided by a panel of judges and announced on Friday 1st October.
All finalists from these categories will also be entered into the running for the People’s Choice Award, which allows members of the public a chance to vote for their favourite finalist.
An awards ceremony will take place later in autumn; whether this will be a virtual event or not is to be confirmed.
The deadline for nominations and applications is 5pm on Friday 14th May.
To apply, or to nominate a group or person for an award, please visit the Scottish Charity Awards website.
Alternatively, for further information, visit the SCVO website.
