Entries are now open for this year’s Social Enterprise awards.  The awards celebrate and honour all the great work being done by social enterprises across Cumbria.

There are five categories for the awards this year … with a special Innovation Award to mark the work social enterprises have been doing over the past year, rising above the crisis situation caused by Covid to adopt new ways of working and even delivering new services. As well as the prestige, the five winners receive £750 cash for their social enterprise and the runners-up £250.  So whether you’re big or small, well established or have just started out on your journey, there’s an award that could have your name on it!

The application process is straight forward, so what have you got to loose … come on tell us why your social enterprise business, community enterprise or social entrepreneur is ahead of the rest and what makes them special.

The winners will be announced and presented at this year’s online Awards Ceremony to be held on Tuesday, 23rd March.
