Alternative Futures Group was named the Charity of the Year with an income over £30m at the Charity Times Awards in London last week.

The North West based charity, which helps adults with learning disabilities or mental health needs, was recognised for consistently meeting financial management targets without compromising its high levels of support.

More than 650 people gathered at the Lancaster Hotel last night to recognise excellence in the charity sector, with awards handed out across 28 categories.

Diabetes UK was the overall winner in the Charity of the Year with an income between £10m to £30m category. Judges said the charity had achieved a strong year of fundraising growth, clear identification of service needs and targeted interventions, and a successful awareness campaign.

Charity of the Year with an income of between £5m and 10m went to Trinity Hospice and Palliative Care Services, which the judges said had displayed an impressive turnaround and success.

The Charity of the Year with an income of between £1m and £5m was North Devon Hospice, recognised for excellent education and outreach work with a clear engagement and leadership role with the community. Charity of the Year with an income of under £1m was the ClementJames Centre, which the judges called work-focused, innovative and highly impactful.

The awards, now in their 15th year, attracted hundreds of high quality entries which were then evaluated by an expert independent judging panel.
