Camelot – supporting the Society of Editors since 2001

Camelot is proud to support the Society of Editors’ Press Awards.

Since its launch in 1994, The National Lottery has delivered a life-changing £41 billion for Good Causes, with more than 565,000 individual awards made across the UK – an average of over 200 lottery grants in every postcode district. It has also awarded over £75 billion in prizes and created more than 5,700 millionaires or multi-millionaires.

The National Lottery is at the heart of communities across the UK and benefits millions of people’s lives – just as the national, regional and local media do every day. Thanks to your invaluable support over the past 26 years, National Lottery winners have been able to share their good news, missing ticket-holders have been united with their previously-unclaimed winnings and a huge range of projects have been able to highlight the life-changing difference they make thanks to vital National Lottery funding.  

The Careers Office – giving all students a step up

The Careers Office believes in helping ALL young people achieve their dreams, regardless of their background.

We work to give students the guidance, confidence and contacts to get into the workplace whatever their background , school or up-bringing.

We believe in diversity, and nurturing inclusivity. 

The Careers Office liaises closely with industries – including the media, medicine, banking, Formula 1 – to provide work experience and other opportunities for students at school and university.

Often the young people come from disadvantaged  backgrounds, such as schools with high quotas of free school meals .

Often they dont get the support they need to work out how to get into their chosen careers and fulfil their potential.

The Careers Office aims to break down the barriers and  give them the step up they are crying out for.

The awards are also supported by Google News Initative, Cision, the British Journalism Review and Cecil King Memorial Foundation.
