About the Third Sector Awards Cymru
Countless third sector groups all across Wales do inspirational
things every day.
If you know a group that deserves recognition for their
achievements, nominate them for the Third Sector Awards Cymru and
give them their moment in the spotlight.
The Third Sector Awards Cymru promote, recognise and celebrate
the hard work and great achievements of third sector groups from
around the country.
The very best in Wales' third sector organisations are honoured
across seven categories, and winners will receive their awards at
an exclusive ceremony in Cardiff.

year's winners here or contact the WCVA helpdesk
for more information on 0800 2888 329 or firstname.lastname@example.org
There are six categories in which you can nominate your own
organisation and a seventh to nominate another organisation.
Award for best communications
Supported by Creative
Does your organisation have an effective or different way of
communicating your message? How well do you communicate? - with
your staff or volunteers; with your members or service users; or
perhaps you are using social media to get your messages out?
The environmental award
Has your organisation developed a project to deliver
environmental benefits to the local area or community? Have you
helped protect species or habitats; run sustainable resource, food
or travel projects or taken steps to reduce your carbon footprint
as an organisation and through the services you provide?
Health, social care and wellbeing award*
How has your organisation put people at the centre and
co-designed and codelivered services with them to make a real
difference to their lives? This can be early
intervention/preventive work, maintaining independent living,
self-care or reablement.
*The category recognises that work in health, social care and
wellbeing is often in partnership and could be a consortium or
inter-agency approach: we therefore welcome applications from a
partnership/consortium that is led by the third sector, as well as
an individual organisation.
Award for good governance
Trustees play a vital role in the governance, management and
administration of charities and voluntary organisations. Tell us
about the work your trustees do to ensure that your organisation is
well run and exemplar.
Award for innovative fundraising

fundraising community in Wales for the campaign or event which
demonstrates significant innovation and creativity. Tell us about
how your fundraising team were able to create a successful and
innovative campaign to raise money in these difficult times.
Award for digital inclusion
Supported by Digital Communities
Tell us how your organisation is promoting basic digital skills
and helping your members or service users to get online. Are you

activities in your area?
