We’ve been shortlisted for a Charity Times Award

28 Jul 2016

We’re excited to be on the shortlist for the Change Project of the Year award for the Charity Times Awards!

It’s in recognition of our new Salesforce IT platform, helping to achieve a one-system, unified way of working.

The new platform is helping to integrate our teams’ work and processes - across Fundraising, Grants and Finance - which ultimately leads to the best results possible for the patients and communities we help.

The change project took six months from beginning to end, and we’re now using it to good effect, while continuing to find ways to improve and build.

The nomination reflects the ambition of our organisation and the strides we’ve made and are making in pursuit of our vision of extraordinary healthcare for all those we support.

We’re up against Breast Cancer Now and Parkinson’s UK, among others.

Arati Patel, our Director of Finance and Operations, commented:

"The project has delivered a fundamental organisational change and an effective foundation on which we can continue to make a real difference to healthcare, now and in the future. To be on the shortlist for the Charity Times Awards Change Project of the Year is an honour; we’d like to thank everyone involved – staff and partners – for the successful delivery of the project."

The Charity Times Awards are the celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. The awards are in the 17th year, run by Charity Times Magazine - the leading title for UK non-profit professionals.

The winners will be announced on 28th September. The full shortlist is available to view here.
