Entries to the Winchester Business Excellence Awards are well and truly open and this week, we introduce the Charity or Social Enterprise of the Year Award, kindly sponsored by The University of Winchester.

This award has been specially designed to recognise the valuable contributions made by charities or social enterprise businesses within the Winchester District and will be presented to a charity or social enterprise which has made the most difference to its target beneficiaries or community.

Last year, we saw Winchester Young Carers scoop the award, closely followed by finalists: Winchester Citizens Advice Bureau, Live at Home and Winchester Churches Night Shelter.

This year, the judges will be looking for a business which can demonstrate:

  • Clearly outlines social goals and objectives
  • Excellent local leadership and management of the organisation
  • Clear evidence of social and community impact within the Winchester District
  • Evidence of substantial growth

The award ceremony and dinner will take place on Friday 1st June at Winchester Guildhall and all finalists will receive two tickets to the ceremony, with additional tickets available to purchase.
