Improving Impact
Charity Governance Awards 2019

In May 2019, the Muslim Women's Network UK were thrilled to win the 5000 award for Improving Impact (4-25 Staff) at the Charity Governance Awards. The award, which was also sponsored by the Cloth Workers Company, was collected by our Chair, Nazmin Akthar on behalf of MWNUK. For the first time ever they announced joint winners for this category, we were proud to share the accolade with fellow winners Derry Well Women based in Northern Ireland.

Winning an award is always an honour but to win because our board have been, "demonstrating best-practice in an evidence-based approach to strategic and operational decision making", is simply the best recognition we could have received. In her winner's statement Nazmin thanked all our funders, especially the Joseph Roundtree Charitable Trust who have supported us from the beginning. She said, "the trust and faith placed in us by our funders is what motivates us trustees to strive for excellence and ensure we are truly meeting our charitable aims."
