The SE Passion Award was one which we picked as it recognises young people who are making great leaps in social enterprise.

The event held on Social Enterprise day (20th November) as part of Enterprise Week  was hosted by Birmingham University which was a fabulous setting for the awards.

We’re committed to supporting social enterprises develop and we’re pleased to be demonstrating this support by sponsoring the awards. Being a social entrepreneur brings great rewards, but challenges in equal measure, that’s why we think recognising achievement in awards like this is essential. We’d like to congratulate all those nominated and wish you all every success in your social ventures.” (Dave Lane CE)
