We are so proud of Wales’ thriving social business sector; the amount of hard work going on across the country to help improve our communities is incredibly inspiring. And we don’t want that hard work to go unrecognised – we want to shout about your successes and tell the world how brilliant you are! So put your modesty aside, submit your award applications and get ready to bask in the warmth of your well deserved limelight.
Winners will receive £1000 prize money, a professional photo-shoot of their organisation, media coverage and a trophy to be presented to them at an award ceremony in Cardiff City Hall. The ceremony will be a glamorous, celebrity hosted event; a real opportunity to celebrate achievement and shine a spotlight on the positive impacts of the sector.
