What they should all have in common is the determination to secure a specific change that will make things better – whether for a group of people, a local neighbourhood or for every single one of us.
The nominee must be:
• A UK resident
• Working on a campaign based in the UK
• Be over the age of 18
• Be involved with a campaign that fits within one of our categories
• Be campaigning on an issue that affects a wider community, not just one individual
• Not involved in a campaign that is discriminatory, unethical, or hateful.
• The campaign or work being nominated should have come to fruition, or most of it taken place, in 2023.
You don’t have to be part of a registered charity to be nominated or to win an Award.
What do we mean when we say campaigning?
Review the categories below to decide what is the best fit for your nomination idea and then nominate accordingly. Please note that multiple entries for the same nominee will not increase the chance of winning in one or more categories.
