The Directory of Social Change is pleased to announce the nominations for the 2012 Social Change Awards are now open. The Social Change Awards are for all those working to achieve a positive change in society - individuals, charities, community groups, funders, companies, public bodies.
You can nominate yourself/your own organisation or recommend others for nomination. Please note, all organisations and individuals must be based in the UK to be eligible, their work however, can be international.
The 2012 Social Change Awards Categories:
Everyday Impact Award - New Enterprises
Organisations or individuals that engage and involve others to bring about real and concrete results that can be seen and felt on a daily basis. This nomination is for 'new' enterprises that have recently started up and been running for up to 5 years.
Everyday Impact Award - Long-term Enterprises
Organisations or individuals that engage and involve others to bring about real and concrete results that can be seen and felt on a daily basis. This nomination is for long-term sustained enterprises that have been running for more than 5 years.
This award is solely for individuals that really know which buttons to press to make things happen - from campaigning for a change in law to bringing together different groups to achieve what might have seemed impossible.
The Great Giving Funders Award
This award is for funders that demonstrate a clear understanding of their beneficiaries and funding environment. The funder will be able to demonstrate that they apply and use that understanding to inform and improve grant making by giving clear guidance and support.
The Lifetime Achievement Award
This award is for individuals who have made a major impact on their organisation/community and have devoted their time and energy to achieving sustained positive change over the span of their working life.
