Announcing the 2021 Social Enterprise Awards Scotland

Posted: 24 May 2021, in News

Last year we ran a Digital Showcase, replacing our annual Social Enterprise Awards Scotland with an event that focused on the recognition of social enterprise in their communities during the pandemic.

After this change in format in 2020, we are delighted to bring back our traditional awards programme to recognise the incredible work of social enterprise organisations across Scotland and the agility, ability and active role our sector can play in building places, supporting communities and making a positive impact on our environment and wellbeing.

There are of course many challenges we are still facing and while the awards event itself is likely to be a hybrid or digital affair (planned for November 2nd with details to follow, please save the date!), we are bringing back our traditional categories, with seven different awards available to showcase the social enterprise sector and its impact beyond the COVID-19 context.

We have also updated our Social Enterprise Champion category to include all staff and volunteers. This is a great opportunity to nominate and celebrate someone in your team who has gone above and beyond to really support your organisation and its mission this last year.

Please take a look at the Social Enterprise Awards Scotland website for all information about the awards in one place, the deadline for applications is Monday, July 12th 2021.

In addition to the upcoming online event and sustained social media promotion, we will also be producing a digital brochure highlighting the work of all the social enterprises who are shortlisted.

This year again, we are delighted to link our awards to the UK wide programme in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, offering wider opportunities for promotion and celebration of the work of Scottish social enterprises.

We really hope you can join us and encourage you to apply in the Social Enterprise Awards Scotland 2021. Take part in the conversation on social media and let colleagues and peers know about the awards using the hashtag #SocEntAwards21.
