Welcome to the 2023 Kent Charity Awards

By completing and submitting this form you will be entering your organisation into this year’s awards.   The Awards a free to enter and deadline for entries is Friday 19th May 2023

All entry forms will be viewed by our judging panel. Your submission is what our judges see first and if you rush this process, unfortunately it could be the award application that is the culprit of you not becoming a finalist.

Once you have put down the basics, maybe share the document with your colleagues and even service users for their suggestions . Really demonstrate how good your organisation is, tell us about your team, about your ideas and also let us know if you collaborate with other charities.

Don’t forget to nominate a colleague, friend or someone you know into our Volunteer and Trustee of the Year category.  The nomination form can be found here.

NB: We would recommend you prepare your entry in a separate document first and then complete the entry form online, this way should there be a technical failure you will at least have a copy of your entry.  If you have not heard confirming receipt of your entry, we would be grateful if you could email us at info@kentcharityawards.com
