The Asian Voice Charity Awards, powered by Charity Clarity,will be taking place on Friday 18thMay this year at the Hilton on Park Lane, London. We are proud to announce the names of those shortlisted for this year's awards, chosen by a panel of esteemed judges; Lord Jitesh Gadhia, Investment banker; David Stead, Director of Philanthropy and Development at the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF); Alderman Alison Gowman, Chair, City Bridge Trust; and Subhash Thakrar, Founder Chair, Charity Clarity.
The awards are not only about charities which seek to solve the most pressing social issues of our time both in Britain and internationally, but also for those that seek to innovate and strive for excellence and whose success is judged by their end results.
We want to showcase excellence in organisations which operate in Great Britain and globally, and give a much-needed boost to organisations struggling to get the profile and funding they need to move forward. These Awards offer a valuable leverage to organisations that are delivering practical solutions to present-day problems.
