Welcome to the 2020 Kent Charity Awards

By completing and submitting this form you will be entering your organisation into this year’s awards.   Deadline for entries is Friday 5 February 2021.

All entry forms will be viewed by our judging panel so we urge you to spend extra time on completing this form.  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.  You need to get the judges attention so do use the maximum word count if necessary and also think of ways to gain their interest. You can always upload additional information if you wish.

It has been an incredibly difficult time for the Third Sector and many charities have had to change the way they deliver their services. Because of this we have added two additional questions to the entry form.  If you have already submitted an entry please can you re-submit this, completing the new questions and also making any amendments/additions that you would like the judges to know, especially in light of the current situation.  If you need a copy of your entry please contact us on info@kentcharityawards.com or call us on 01622 239303.

Each entry will be mentioned in the KM Group newspapers, we will write a short profile on your entry and submit this together with an image of your organisation.  Please can you send the high res image to info@kentcharityawards.com

For your information, you can also vote for your favourite trustee or volunteer who you feel should be crowned Trustee of the Year and Volunteer of the Year.  There is a separate entry form for these awards which 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 from us before 20 March 2020 confirming receipt of your entry, we would be grateful if you could get in touch with us on 01622 239303 or email info@kentcharityawards.com
