Nominations are now open for the 2021 Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) Awards to celebrate charities and social enterprises who are proving themselves effective at preventing and tackling poverty.
The CSJ Awards find the very best grassroot charities and social enterprises from across Britain, gives them £10,000 to scale their impact and puts them in the spotlight for senior politicians, philanthropists and business and charity leaders to be inspired by and learn from.
CSJ works closely with an Alliance of grassroot charities and social enterprises as they are critical to the mission, both in their vital work supporting people out of poverty and through feeding their insights and ideas into the policy work.
The CSJ Awards 2021 will have four winners, one for each of the turnover categories below. CSJ wants to learn from the smallest charities as well as the ones that have been established for a while. This year therefore they want to categorise the awards by income levels so they can compare charities operating from similar financial positions.
- Under £100k
- Between £100k and £500k
- Between £500k and £1million
- Between £1 million and £2 million
