The Tree Council shortlisted for Charity Awards 2024

The Tree Council

May 21, 2024

The Tree Council made the shortlist for this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector!

The Tree Council has been shortlisted in the Animals and the Environment category for its Young Tree Champions (YTC) project, which aims to puts trees, nature, children, and their wellbeing, at the heart of the learning agenda.

The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly regarded excellence recognition scheme. All 30 shortlisted charities this year have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn.

Now going into its fifth year, YTC has directly engaged 44,000 students and teachers at 769 schools across the UK, and planted and cared for 32,000 trees. YTC seeks to create a long-term legacy by enabling young people and teachers to connect with nature, learn about trees, care and take responsibility for the environment, and share new knowledge by developing the confidence to speak up.

YTC is proudly supported by M&G.

The 10 category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced at a black-tie dinner on Tuesday 9 July, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

The evening will be hosted by broadcaster and commentator Baroness Ayesha Hazarika, who will be joined on the night by a host of celebrities, representatives of the shortlisted charities, as well as leaders from Britain’s best known and best loved charities.

Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated The Tree Council on making the highly coveted shortlist.

He said: “Every year we are astounded and inspired by the breadth and depth of work going on across the UK’s wonderful charity sector. But this year in particular we have noticed a real improvement in the professionalism of the entries, signalling that charities are more cognisant than ever of the need for good governance, strong leadership and effective management.

“Everything that we do at Civil Society Media aims to help charities have greater impact, and for the last 23 years the Charity Awards has identified and celebrated the sector’s great work. Congratulations to all the charities on this year’s shortlist; in a year of record entries you ought to be very proud of getting this far.

“I wish The Tree Council the best of luck on the night.”
