Award Nominations in Manchester

Award Nominations in Manchester

August 22, 2017

We’re over the moon to be nominated for not just one, but two awards for our work in the North. 

First up, we’ve been shortlisted as ‘Charity of the Year’ in the inaugural North West Charity Awards. The award recognises those charities that have had a truly exceptional year and whose recent achievements have attracted the admiration of the sector in the Northwest region.

Secondly, UpRising has also been nominated for a Spirit of Manchester Award in the Equalities category. This recognises organisations within the Manchester area who are working to address equalities issues and challenge discrimination. We are one of three organisations to be nominated, alongside the brilliant MASH Outreach Volunteer Team and Out of Africa.

These accolades come just after we were shortlisted in this year’s Social Mobility Awards, which announced last month.

We’re delighted that our achievements and influence are being recognised at this level. The outcomes of our nominations will be announced in Autumn.


Fingers crossed everyone!
