Every year Social Enterprise Scotland holds an annual awards programme celebrating the impact of social enterprise, recognising leaders in the social enterprise community and highlighting new and upcoming organisations. The event is held in Parliament and we were due to host our 2020 event on 3rd November. However, Covid means not only is this not physically possible but we also felt that in such an exceptional year when many businesses and social enterprises are struggling it was not right to do the event as we normally do.
However, we did not want the work of social enterprise during Covid to go unrecognised. Many social enterprises from all over Scotland have responded to the Covid crisis, reinforcing the positive contribution they make in our communities. A formal announcement of this showcase event will be made public on 15th September.
