Inspiring individuals help transform our society every day.

Scottish charities are full of social leaders whose dedication and commitment to their cause helps make our country a better place.

If you know an exceptional and influential person who demonstrates outstanding dedication to a charity or cause, then they could be the Charity Champion 2016.

The Charity Champion award recognises a volunteer, supporter or patron (unpaid) who has gone that extra mile and made a significant difference to your organisation, your community or cause, we want to hear about the breadth of work carried out over the years and in particular we’d like to hear about activity that has taken place between 1 January 2015 and 31 March 2016.

Judges will be looking for examples of a range of activities, a creative and/or innovative approach, or an exceptional achievement.
