SOCIAL ENTERPRISE NEWS
We are delighted to unveil the shortlisted applicants for the 2021 Social Enterprise Awards Scotland. Our judges have been hard at work reviewing the applications prepared by organisations across Scotland over the last couple of weeks and today we are introducing you to our finalists.
Download our shortlist brochure here.
The shortlisted organisations across the seven award categories have all impressed us with their applications, mission and purpose, and the impact they deliver. We’d like to thank all the social enterprises who took the time to apply to this year’s awards.
Save the date to join us at the 2021 Awards on November 2nd. This is likely to be a blended event with a reception at the Scottish Parliament and a digital celebration. We will announce further details closer to the date and look forward to showcasing the incredible impact of social enterprise together at this year’s award ceremony.
We’re also delighted to announce that Lorna Slater, Co-leader of the Scottish Greens and MSP for the Lothian Region will be joining us for the 2021 Awards ceremony.
Now, let’s meet our Social Enterprise Awards finalists!
