Change Please named International Social Enterprise of the year!
We are thrilled to announce that we have received the International Social Enterprise award at the UK Social Enterprise Awards 2022!
Thank you to everyone who has continued to support us by buying our coffee, donating, fundraising, and working with us to make real change!
This is a great honour for us, as the Social Enterprise Awards recognizes excellence and innovation, characterises which we hold at the heart of Change Please. There are 100,000 social enterprises in the UK like us, contributing £60 billion, all which are businesses which trade for a social purpose that reinvest or donate over half their profits to further their social or environmental mission.
Peter Holbrook, Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK, said:
“The last year has been a difficult one for businesses across the UK, and it has been no different for social enterprises. The Awards were a real evening of hope and inspiration and brought home the sheer ingenuity, adaptability and determination of the social enterprise community, which has continued to deliver for the people and communities they work with and support.
The ever-growing movement of social enterprise truly represents business at its best.”
Social enterprises are an integral part of building up a positive society, set up to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing society and the environment.
Thank you for all your support, we wouldn’t be where we are today without you!
