UK Charity Week founder Lee Rayment, who heads the judges for the Charity Today Awards, said:

“We want to congratulate all of our finalists, and in particular those who unfortunately did not make the next stage of the process. It was incredibly difficult to narrow so many quality nominations down, but we took our time to carry out our due diligence on every single application and we’re satisfied that we have the strongest finals possible. This is set to be a very inspirational and humbling evening”
