For a third successive year, Ecclesiastical Insurance is inviting nominations to its £1 million Movement for Good Awards.

The programme has two funding phases:

  • Phase 1 will award 500 charities with £1,000 each. Nominations will be accepted from 24 May to 13 June 2021. The more nominations a charity receives, the greater their chance of winning. Winners are selected by a draw.
  • Phase 2 will take place later in the summer with further details to come. Charities can register to be kept up to date.

Anyone can nominate a charity to receive one of the £1,000 awards as long as the charity:

  • has been in existence for at least six months
  • is a not-for-profit organisation
  • has satisfied the due diligence of the promoter.
  • is registered with one of the following:
  • Charity Commission for England and Wales
  • Charity Commission in Northern Ireland
  • Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator
  • Charities Regulator for the Republic of Ireland
  • Jersey Charity Commissioner or the Guernsey Registry (Channel Islands) or the Central Registry (Isle of Man)
  • does not discriminate unlawfully in any way
  • does not support any specific political party or affiliated group.
  • does not relate to any controversial subject matter that is contrary to the values and expectations of the promoter

Eligible charities could range from smaller, volunteer-run groups to larger, well-known organisations. A list of previous winners can be found on the movementforgood website.

A charity can win only once but they can be nominated multiple times. The more nominations a charity gets, the more likely they are to win £1,000.

The winners will be selected at random from a pool of nominations and announced on the website from 21 June 2021 to 2 July 2021.

Entry is free. Full details, including the terms and conditions, and the online nomination form can be found on as can a range of resources for charities to raise awareness within their community.

The deadline for entries for a £1,000 grant is 23:59 on Sunday, 13 June 2021.
