Winners of the UK Social Enterprise Awards 2021

The UK Social Enterprise Awards took place on 8 December at the Guildhall in central London and was hosted by comedian Suzie Ruffell. It introduced two new categories  – one recognising those social enterprises which are leading the way in building equity, diversity, inclusion and justice into their work and also a second new award for the Social Enterprise of the Year. From social enterprises transforming the food system to employee-owned dentists breaking down barriers to dental care – the winners showcased the best of the UK’s vibrant social enterprise community.

We are pleased to be working with Social Enterprise Northern Ireland, Social Enterprise Scotland and the Wales Co-operative Centre to deliver the Awards.
