Islington Mind shortlisted for Charity Award
Islington Mind has now made the shortlist for this year’s Charity Award in the category Social Care, Advice & Support. The shortlisted project is our Freedom From Fear To Love support service, which is supported by the City Bridge Trust and the Sir Halley Stewart Foundation.
All 30 shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.
The 10 category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced on 7 June.
Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated Islington Mind on making the highly-coveted shortlist. He said: “The external environment in which the sector is operating has seldom been more challenging, yet charities continue to inspire us with their imagination, ambition and professionalism.”
Charity Awards judge Richard Hawkes said: “Islington Mind had identified and plugged a real gap in service provision for a highly vulnerable group.”
Judge Karin Woodley added: “This is a really difficult issue that sometimes people can’t even talk about with their own families, particularly for trans or non-binary refugees. The fact that Mind has taken this on is really groundbreaking and will have a real impact across the sector in terms of awareness. I celebrate them for being brave enough to do it.”
The awards ceremony takes place on 7 June 2023 at the Royal Lancaster in London.
