The housing association One Vision, the social inclusion charity P3 and the debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty have been chosen as the three best not-for-profit organisations to work for, in an awards scheme run by The Sunday Times newspaper.

The broadsheet is due to publish the full list of winners of its 100 best not-for-profit organisations to work for awards on 11 March, but the winners’ names have emerged after being announced at an awards evening last night.

The crime reduction charity the St Giles Trust and the Richmond Housing Partnership make up the rest of the top five, the list shows.

Each organisation that entered had to fill in a questionnaire giving workplace statistics and demographics. They were judged on this and the results of staff surveys.

Last year’s competition, called 100 best places to work in the public and charity sectors list, was won by the children’s hospice charity Julia’s House. It was ranked 51st this year.

One Vision, which was fifth last year, announced the win in a statement on its website today. In the statement, its chief executive, Roy Williams, said: "To be number one is nothing short of extraordinary. The accolade is even more special because it’s an achievement based on the results of staff feedback."

The Sunday Times declined to comment.

Charity property: could you be entitled to a huge VAT saving?

Partner Content: Presented By Markel

When a property is being constructed, VAT is charged at the standard rate. But if you're a charity, health body, educational institution, housing association or finance house, the work may well fall into a category that justifies zero-rating - and you could make a massive saving
