While a judging panel will determine the winners under eight distinct categories, members of the public can have their say by voting for their favourite overall entry in the People’s Choice Award – by visiting scvo.org.uk/vote . Voting opens at 9am on Friday 3 May and closes on Friday 17 May 2019.
The full shortlist includes:
Winners will be announced at the glittering awards ceremony on Friday 14 June 2019 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The evening will begin with a red carpet welcome for guests, a drinks reception with networking followed by a three course dinner. The highlight will of course be the awards ceremony, where hundreds of guests will hear more about out finalists before the winners are revealed.
Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive of SCVO, said: “I am so looking forward to this year’s Scottish Charity Awards – we have a fantastic 44 finalists, which highlights the diverse variety of fantastic work that’s being going on in Scotland’s voluntary sector over the past 12 months. The Awards are a great way of celebrating and recognising those working to better our communities, and as in previous years, the calibre of this year’s finalists highlights their creative and innovate approaches to finding solutions to support their communities during challenging times. All of our finalists are so deserving and I would encourage people to support their favourite by voting in the People’s Choice Award.”
