Youth Award – sponsored by Guernsey Electricity

Awarded to a young person who encapsulates commitment, contribution and giving, either to or for the community, individuals, family or others. A young unsung hero. Through caring, by volunteering, by achieving, in showing spirit or heroic deed, perhaps above and beyond expectation and in ways that would not normally attract the limelight.

Outstanding Individual Achievement – sponsored by PwC CI

Fundraising Team of the Year – sponsored by Cazenove Capital

Innovation Award – sponsored by Specsavers

The Innovation Award recognises creative ways of working that will benefit the voluntary sector or our wider community. This could include partnership working between charities and the private or public sectors, and could be awarded to an individual or team. Recognition could extend to new projects; new or inventive ways of working or approaching problems that enable more effective delivery of services; filling gaps in provision; or operate outside of the normal remit of a charitable or community organisation.

Corporate Social Responsibility – sponsored by RBC Wealth Management

The CSR award recognises the active involvement of a commercial company and its team directly with charitable, voluntary or community projects in its locality, or through its partnership with a local charitable, voluntary or community organisation that has had a quantifiably positive effect on the local community over the last year’s.
