2016 Awards

7th December 2016, London

The day was an incredible success. Not only did attendees get to hear about amazing best practice from throughout the 3rd Sector, they were also entertained by fantastic performances from Dance Unity and Halas Homes. Their moving dance routines brought many audience members to tears.

Dame Esther Rantzen once again kept the day running smoothly. Putting her interviewing techniques to good use, drawing out why our winners were truly deserving and making the day very special for everyone in attendance.

The Awards were so well received they trended on Twitter for the second year running. Sitting at number 2 – just below Prime Minister’s Questions, the exposure helped to raise the profile of the winners and finalists.

Congratulations to all 2016 winners and finalists for the amazing work they do.
