The Charity Times Awards reaches its thirteenth year in 2012 and this highly successful, popular, and growing annual gala event will be bigger and better than ever.

As always the Charity Times Awards are FREE to enter and continue to be the pre-eminent celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. We recognise that it is the leaders within charities who are responsible for coordinating much of the charitable activity throughout the UK and as the engines of the charity sector; it is at this level that the Awards are targeted.

This year we have put together a list of 23 categories, including four NEW categories:

For Charities and Not-for Profit Institutions
International Charity
Social Investment Initiative
Big Society Award

Professional Services Category:
Consultancy of the Year

The event itself is built around the individuals and teams for whom the Awards are intended: trustees, chief executives, directors and other upper-level management from not-for-profits across the UK. Reflecting this belief, the Awards provide the charity sector with a dedicated event to reward the work carried out in difficult and competitive conditions, and establishes a unique annual congress of the pre-eminent figures in the sector at the premier charity event of the year.

The winners will be announced at a black tie Awards Gala at London’s prestigious Lancaster London hotel on the18 October 2012.
