Our finalists and winners are all shining examples of the great things happening thanks to the commitment of people working and volunteering in charities, community groups and social enterprises, all championing good causes, providing vital support and making our communities better places to live. Every community, and every part of our society, benefits from the work that SCVO is lucky to see on a daily basis.
