Last year we ran a Digital Showcase, replacing our annual awards with an event that focused on the recognition of social enterprise in their communities during the pandemic. There are of course many challenges we are still facing and while this year’s event is still a digital affair, we wanted to bring back our traditional award categories.
The Social Enterprise Awards Scotland are a real opportunity to showcase the incredible work of the social enterprise sector and while we anticipate that some entries will reflect the challenging times we are living in, we also want to ensure we promote the impact of social enterprise beyond the COVID-19 context.
We want to showcase 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. In addition to the upcoming online event and social media promotion, we will also be producing a digital brochure highlighting the work of all the social enterprises who are shortlisted.
Applications for the 2021 awards are NOW CLOSED but you can join us to hear all about the winners in our Annual Awards Event on 2nd November. We will be joined at the event by Shona Robison, MSP and Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Housing and Local Government.
Take part in the conversation online with the hashtag #SocEntAwards21, share your stories of impact and help us build on this experience for the social enterprise sector moving forwards. A big thank you to our 2021 sponsors for their support in making the Social Enterprise Awards Scotland possible.
