The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) is calling for organisations across the region to apply for its annual Scottish Charity Awards.

This year SCVO has also tried to make the awards simpler and more accessible to as many people and organisations as possible, with a number of improvements to the application and judging process – including the introduction of a new Small Charity of the Year award in recognition of charities with turnover of £500k and below.

All finalists will also be entered into the running for the People’s Choice Award, giving members of the public a chance to vote.

Anna Fowlie, chief executive of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), said: “In these stormy times, it’s great to have something to look forward to. The Scottish Charity Awards always light up our calendars and remind us of the invaluable, inspiring work voluntary organisations across the country are doing every day.

“Being shortlisted for an award spotlights your story and celebrates the massive contribution of people and organisations to our communities and our country.
