Entries open for CSJ Awards 2017

Howard Lake | 10 October 2016 | News

Entries are now open for the CSJ Awards, which recognise the achievements of local charities and voluntary organisations throughout the UK which have developed effective and innovative ways of addressing a variety of entrenched social issues.
Run by the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ), the awards offer a prize of £10,000 to each winning organisation, plus a chance to have their work profiled at the awards ceremony in London to a large audience of politicians, celebrities, philanthropists, leaders from the private and voluntary sector, and the media.
Previous winners of the CSJ Awards have included organisations that have helped to tackle modern slavery, rehabilitate ex-offenders and perpetrators of domestic violence, improve educational outcomes in deprived areas and bring isolated older people back into the community.
The CSJ aims to help these remarkable organisations and the individuals that drive them get noticed, in particular in Westminster. The organisation continues to work with the winners to help their work achieve greater impact.

Replicable projects

The CSJ Awards judges look for outstanding grassroots charities and social enterprises that are effective in helping people find a pathway out of poverty and tackle the root causes of poverty. They are also looking for innovative solutions that are sustainable, long-term and replicable across the UK.
