Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) Awards are given to community-based charities and voluntary groups that are preventing poverty or helping people and families caught in damaging situations to turn their lives around. We want to celebrate and award some of the best initiatives throughout the UK that are helping people to find a sustainable way out of the situations they are in.
Winning organisations will receive £10,000 cash prize, awarded at a high-profile evening celebration in London on October 23 2014, before an audience of 400 key influencers including MPs, philanthropists and policy makers.
To apply you must:
- Be a voluntary group with charitable objectives, or a registered charity;
- Work directly with people living in social or financial poverty in the UK (this can include working in areas like addiction, unemployment, educational failure, family breakdown and money management);
- Be seeking solutions that will help people out of poverty and enable them to change their lives;
- Have an annual turnover of less than £3 million.
