The Awards are run by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the national body representing the interests of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.
The shortlist includes some tough competition with 40 individuals and organisations from across the third sector in Scotland.
Run annually by the SCVO, the awards are open to any voluntary organisation, charity, community group or individual charity volunteer or staff member, and celebrate the life-changing work they do and their dedication to making Scotland a better place to live.
There are eight categories – Charity of the Year, Charity Champion, Demonstrating Digital, Pioneering Project, Terrific Trustee, Leading Light, Celebrating Communities and Cracking Campaign.
Shortlisted alongside us in Demonstrating Digital are some incredible charities namely: Scottish Book Trust, Shelter Scotland, Marie Curie and Addaction. We feel privileged to sit next to them in this category!
Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive, SCVO, said: “I am so looking forward to my first Scottish Charity Awards as Chief Executive of SCVO. We know there is fantastic work going on in our communities thanks to third sector organisations, from national charities to local volunteer groups, and the Awards are a great way of celebrating and recognising those involved.
“As always, the calibre of this year’s finalists highlights not only their creativity, tenacity and innovation, but also the diverse variety of charitable work across the country.
“All of our finalists are so deserving and I would encourage people to support their favourite by voting in the People’s Choice Award.”
The Awards evening will begin with a red carpet welcome for guests, a drinks reception with networking followed by a dinner. The highlight will be the Awards ceremony itself, where 500 guests will hear more about the finalists before the winners are revealed.
