Here they are- the winners of this year’s awards. You may have seen my blog about the awards on The Guardian Voluntary Sector Network this morning.

Below is our infographic of this year’s winners, including the top 30, the overall winner, and the 3 awards for best trustee, best senior leader and best rising star.

We’ve also created a briefing to bring charity leaders up to speed with all the key issues in social media, from dealing with trolls, managing content, business development, and finding and retaining talent.  Get your copy here. 

The judges were impressed by the very high standard of this year’s winners. They also expressed the view that they are keen to see more charity leaders pushing the boundaries, such as using social media to bridge divided communities. This year they didn’t make an award for most innovative social media presence, for the reasons I’ve mentioned, but hope to do so next year.

We’d like to say thank you to….
