TODAY we are delighted to launch the 2019 Herald Society Awards in association with Wheatley Group.

The awards will highlight the best achievements and most innovative approaches across the public and third sectors throughout Scotland.

The Herald Society Awards have been running for 12 years, and this year the awards are supported by Wheatley Group and evh.

Each year, an expert panel of judges helps us to assess the most dedicated workers and teams. They also look at the projects with the biggest impact and the most imaginative ideas at work to tackle social problems, meet health needs and promote learning among young and old alike.

With 12 categories to choose from, no other awards cover the full scope of Scotland’s public and voluntary sector in fields such as health, education, social services and charities.

In this, our 12th year, we are delighted to be back to celebrate those who go the extra mile. This year’s entry deadline is Wednesday, September 11, 2019.

The awards are a great celebration of the hard work towards Scotland’s third and public sectors, as well as a chance to meet and mingle with the people responsible for Scotland’s most inspiring social initiatives.

The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at DoubleTree by Hilton, Glasgow.

Wheatley Foundation chairman Sir Harry Burns, said: “At Wheatley our mission is ‘Making Homes and Lives Better’ for the hundreds of thousands of people we work for across Scotland.”

“For us, that means working closely with a range of partners – collaborating, sharing knowledge and developing new solutions that make a difference to communities.

“We see up close lots of examples, many of them both inspiring and innovative, of people and organisations whose work is changing people’s lives for the better. “They deserve to be recognised and celebrated and that is why we are proud to support The Herald Society Awards this year.”

Eamonn Connolly, director, evh said: “Once again, we are delighted to be associated with these prestigious awards, which celebrate those wonderful people and instructions which give selflessly for the betterment of their fellow citizens.”
