Cambridge House’s Safer Renting project has made the shortlist for this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector.
Safer Renting, which works to prevent homelessness amongst high-risk renters, has been shortlisted in the Social Care, Advice and Support category.
All 28 shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.
The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced at a black-tie dinner on 5 June, held in the grounds of the Tower of London.
The evening will be hosted by the Rev Richard Coles, who will be joined on the night by a host of celebrities, representatives of the shortlisted charities, as well as leaders from Britain’s best known and best loved charities.
Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Cambridge House on making the highly-coveted shortlist.
He said: “Once again we received a record number of entries to the Charity Awards, and the breadth and quality of the work being done by charities across the sector continues to astonish. Cambridge House should be very proud to have made the shortlist.”
“For 20 years the Charity Awards have been identifying and celebrating the fantastic work that UK charities do. Our rigorous judging process highlights those charities with the most innovative ideas and the most effective approaches to delivering real change.”
“All the nominees on this year’s shortlist are examples of large and small charities who are truly leaders in their field. I wish Cambridge House the very best of luck on the night.”
