The Herald Society Awards now more time to enter.

THE entry deadline for this year’s Herald Society Awards has been extended as we canvass the country to celebrate the dedication, imagination and most importantly, the vital impact of some of the best work taking place in the public and voluntary sectors.

We are celebrating the 12th year of The Herald Society the awards, in association with Wheatley Group, and are looking to recognise the achievements of businesses, organisations, groups and individuals working hard to make our society a better place.

The awards, which is supported by evh, Turcan Connell and YouthLink Scotland, takes place on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Glasgow, with entries now open until Friday, September 20, 2019.

There are 12 categories available for entry offering opportunities for anyone to showcase the work they have been doing.

This year we are also delighted to introduce a brand-new category recognising those making a difference to young people’s lives. If you or your organisation is working within the public, third sector or an organisation driven by social aims and objectives then we want to hear from you.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to showcase your organisations’ efforts and achievements.

Wheatley Foundation Director Lorraine McLaren said: “At Wheatley our mission is ‘Making Homes and Lives Better’ for the hundreds of thousands of people we work for across Scotland.

“We’re delighted to be supporting this year’s Herald Society Awards and would encourage any organisation which is helping change people’s lives for the better to enter the awards and share with others the good work they do. This is a chance for people who have achieved great things in communities across Scotland to be recognised and celebrated.”

Eamonn Connolly, Director, said “There are many reasons to get involved with The Herald Society Awards, not least the chance to showcase local talent in extensive, countywide media coverage.”

Kenneth Pinkerton, Legal Director specialising in charity law at Turcan Connell, said “What excites me about this event is seeing the passion and energy from those who do make a difference. It’s about learning who is bringing about change for the better and what others can learn from them.”

Tim Frew, Chief Executive, YouthLink Scotland said “The value we place on our young people is a marker for who we are as a nation. We know there are many projects and initiatives in Scotland who are delivering what our young people need to flourish. I would ask people to nominate those incredible organisations whose commitment and vision really does change young people’s lives for the better.”
