Social Enterprise Conference Dundee 2016 Awards – Recognising the local impact

SE Conference 2016

Recognising the local impact
27 October 2016

Social Enterprise Conference Dundee 2016 Awards are in full swing! Right now, there are social entrepreneurs going about their everyday lives in Dundee, who have no idea that in a couple of  months, they will be the stars of one special day in October.

The Awards are just one of the methods we can show local social enterprises that we are aware of, and very much appreciate, the efforts they put into caring for Dundee. This is your chance to show that support and appreciation. You can nominate any local social enterprise based and trading in Dundee. It may be for a single act of incredible work in the community, a long lasting battle for better working places/the environment, or delivery of services from a newly established organisation.
