Big Lottery Fund Chief Executive to Chair Idox Innovation Awards

Big Lottery Fund chief executive Dawn Austwick OBE has been announced as the chair of Idox's Innovation Awards 2015 judging panel.

Manchester, United Kingdom, May 30, 2015 --( Launched in spring of this year, Idox's Innovation Awards aim to recognise, reward and raise the profile of projects that have demonstrated a creative and forward-thinking approach to improving the life of communities in one or more UK locations.

Dawn Austwick, a former chief executive of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and head of the Big Lottery Fund since 2013, has been announced as chair of the Awards' 2015 judging panel. She commented:

"The Big Lottery Fund wants to use its funding to put people in the lead, to support their aspirations and to make life better for local communities. We support thousands of community projects each year with National Lottery funding and so often see first-hand the impact that inspiring initiatives have in building confidence and creating vibrant places for people to live, work and play.

"The Idox Innovation Awards is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate innovative community projects and I am very much looking forward to seeing what the best of these projects have to offer the UK of today – and tomorrow."

The Idox Innovation Awards were created to celebrate Idox's 30 years as Europe's leading providers of funding information.
