ComRes Parliamentary Charity Awards 2019
We hosted our new ComRes Parliamentary Charity Awards on 29th April 2019 at our London HQ in Four Millbank, Westminster.

We hosted our new ComRes Parliamentary Charity Awards on 29th April 2019 at our London HQ in Four Millbank, Westminster.

The awards recognised the campaigning charities that led their field in communicating with parliamentarians across nine categories.

The awards are unique in that MPs themselves are asked to name the charities that lead across each category, in a completely open process. 150 MPs took part in the nominations process.

The coveted ‘Best Parliamentary Campaign’ and ‘Biggest improvement in its relations with Parliament’ were won by Dogs Trust and Guide Dogs for the Blind respectively.

Other winners across the categories included NSPCC, Leonard Cheshire, WWFMacmillan Cancer Support, Oxfam and Open Doors.

Andrew Hawkins, ComRes Chairman, said of the awards:

“Charities play an incredibly valuable role in our society. They have the power to make a tremendous difference to the lives of millions of people. Of course, many do that directly, delivering services of all kinds. But they also have an opportunity to shape public awareness and influence public policy for the better.

As part of our ongoing commitment to serving the charity sector, we want to use the tools at our disposal in order to recognise those that have made the biggest impact on policy makers over the past year.

There are some fantastic and highly deserving charities that have won awards in this, our inaugural year. We wish to congratulate them warmly and thank them for the vital role they play in making our country better for everyone.”
