The CSJ Awards is an annual award that honours the best grassroots, poverty-fighting charities and social enterprises across the UK. Next year four winners will receive a £10,000 grant and be recognised nationally.
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is an independent think tank that exists to tackle poverty across the country. It works closely with its vast network of locally embedded charities, called the CSJ Alliance, to bring their insights and innovative ideas to produce better policy recommendations. The Awards is a unique opportunity for small and medium-sized charities to increase their social impact and have the opportunity to connect with senior politicians, philanthropists and business and charity leaders committed to achieving social justice in Britain.
The award is about finding and recognising small and medium-sized charities and social enterprises that are proving themselves effective at preventing and tackling poverty.
The award judges will be particularly interested in organisations that:
- Focus their work in the most deprived areas of the UK.
- Tackle the root causes of poverty and intervene early to prevent poverty.
- Are ambitious for the lives of those they work with.
- Find innovative ways to combat poverty.
- Have a turnover of less than £2 million.
The closing date is 31 August 2021.
