UK Social Enterprise Awards 2014
Give your organisation the platform it deserves - enter the UK Social Enterprise Awards
Our advice for anyone applying is – DO IT!
This week we spoke to Co-Wheels founder Richard Falconer to ask how winning the Environmental Social Enterprise of the Year in 2013 has made a difference to their organisation...
Winning the Environmental Social Enterprise Award last year provided Co-wheels with an excellent platform to raise our awareness nationally, both within the car club and social enterprise sectors alike.
The award helped to give us the recognition of some of the great environmental impacts Co-wheels is having on reducing car use and CO2 emissions. It has been a catalyst in helping to support our growth, and in securing a dominant market position within the car club sector ensuring sustainable and equitable growth and thus generating greater social impacts.
Our advice for anyone applying is – DO IT! The social enterprise awards are a wonderful way of celebrating success and for giving your organisation the platform it deserves to shout about all the good that you do!
It also helps massively to unlock new opportunities and bring new networks and contacts to your organisation.
