Scotland’s voluntary sector celebrated at SCVO’s annual awards ceremony.

Run annually by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the Scottish Charity Awards celebrates the best of the voluntary sector and this year’s shortlist included 39 individuals and organisations from charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups across the country.

Anna Fowlie, chief executive of SCVO, said: “Once again, we enjoyed a fabulous evening for the 2024 Charity Awards. We had a record number of entrants this year, and a record number of votes for the People’s Choice. With 39 finalists over the ten categories, you can see the huge diversity of the Scottish voluntary sector. Our finalists were rural and urban, working with older people and young people, large and small, and working with everything from human trafficking to recycling. I’m in awe.  

“There were 11 great winners because this year we split Charity of the Year into smaller and larger organisations – a bonus! It was such an inspiring evening, full of people and organisations who make Scotland a better place.”
