Run annually by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the Scottish Charity Awards celebrate the best of Scotland’s voluntary sector.

This year’s shortlist includes 32 individuals and organisations from charities and voluntary groups across the country following a record-breaking number of nominations. While a judging panel will determine the winners under nine distinct categories, members of the public can have their say by voting for their favourite overall entry in the People’s Choice Award – by visiting – before 5pm on Wednesday 24 May 2023.

SUSE has been recognised as a finalist in the Digital Citizen category and we would appreciate our members and Apt partners voting to recognise our combined work.

“We are thrilled to have been nominated for our work on Digital Recruitment Reviews with Apt PSP. We work with our Experience Network and Cole AD to evaluate employers’ digital recruitment processes and provide an action plan to make them more accessible. We are committed to making workplaces more inclusive by helping to remove the digital barriers faced by many disabled job seekers across Scotland.

The 2023 Scottish Charity Awards winners will be announced at a celebratory awards ceremony in Edinburgh on 23 June 2023 – hosted by TV presenter Sally Magnusson.

Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive of SCVO, said: “This year’s Scottish Charity Awards are a fabulous opportunity to celebrate the exceptional individuals and groups within our vibrant sector.

“This year’s record-breaking number of nominations underlines the strength of Scotland’s voluntary sector, and the crucial work that we see from charities and voluntary organisations across the country. The hard work and dedication of people and organisations like these 32 finalists are making Scotland a better place to live and work.
