The Patients Association has been shortlisted for the 2019 Charity Governance Awards.

The Charity Governance Awards celebrates outstanding governance in charities in the UK, and the Patients Association is one of the finalists in the ‘Managing Turnaround’ category. Dementia UK and Dorset Mind complete the shortlist for this category, with 21 charities in total in the running for awards across seven categories.

Rachel Power, Chief Executive of the Patients Association, said:

“It’s extremely gratifying for us to be shortlisted in the 2019 Charity Governance Awards, and we’re looking forward to the awards ceremony in May. With a small and committed staff team, we work hard every day to support patients through our help and advice services, and to represent them locally and nationally through our policy and campaigning work, so it’s fantastic to be recognised in these national awards.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 22 May, with £5,000 to be awarded to the winning charity in each category. You can follow the awards on Twitter via @CharityGovAwards or by using the hashtag #charitygov19.
