Third Sector runs three distinctive sets of awards: the Third Sector Excellence Awards, the Business Charity Awards, and Britain’s Most Admired Charities.

Third Sector Excellence Awards

The Third Sector Excellence Awards are designed to showcase the talent, innovation and success of not-for-profit organisations, be they large or small, registered charities or social enterprises. They take place every autumn.

Charities can enter free of charge, and an expert set of judges make the decisions. The black tie awards night is held at a top London hotel. For more information about the awards and how to enter, click here:

The Business Charity Awards

The Business Charity Awards recognise the outstanding contribution made by businesses in the UK to good causes. Award categories include CSR Team, Outstanding Employee and the best Charity Partnership by a small business.

Britain's Most Admired Charities

Britain’s Most Admired Charities are a set of awards with a difference. The candidates are selected by Third Sector with the advice of a panel of experienced voluntary sector personalities: and the choice is made by charity chief executives who read Third Sector.

The four awards are Most Admired Charity, Most Admired Chief Executive, Most Innovative Charity and Celebrity Charity Champion. Recent winners include the Trussell Trust, Paul Farmer of Mind, Movember and Clare Balding.

The awards are presented at a champagne reception in London. The event is attended by the chief executives who vote and other senior sector figures and has gained a reputation as a top networking event in the sector calendar.
