Entries are now being accepted for this year’s Third Sector Excellence Awards.

The awards, now in their ninth year, recognise the outstanding achievements of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. There are 18 categories this year, including Fundraising Team, Charity Partnership and the Big Impact Award.

Three categories have been added since last year. These are Best Start-up, Rising Chief Executive and Volunteer Manager. Other categories have been adjusted to make them more attractive to smaller organisations.

Entry is free for voluntary organisations and the deadline for submitting entries is Thursday, 30 May. The awards will be judged by a panel of experts drawn from the sector.

Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector, said: "The purpose of the awards is to discover and showcase the outstanding campaigns and big achievements in charities and voluntary organisations of all shapes and sizes over the past year. We know from our daily reporting of life in the sector that it remains as enterprising and creative as ever, partly because hard times can make for smarter ways of doing things."
