The Enterprise in Society Awards are open to all social enterprises based in or delivering in Lancashire.

The following guidelines are provided to give your submission the maximum chance of success:


Your nomination should focus on how the work you do benefits society and its wider impact for Lancashire.

We ask independent judges to form an opinion of all the nominees within each category. The judges may not know your organisation and the content within your application is all they have to assess the most worthy winner of an award.

Make sure you tell them everything you want them to know!


Tell them how you:

  • Have made an impact and achieved your goals
  • Increased or have sought opportunity/s to increase turnover and secure future sustainability i.e., new services developed, or contracts awarded
  • Expanded or consolidated the business
  • Considered the environment

Submitting your nominations

For each nomination/s you are asked to provide a very brief biography and a high-resolution photo that represents your organisation in action. The winning organisation for each category will be invited to talk for 1 minute about the photo submitted to tell the human story behind their work. The photographs from shortlisted organisations will be displayed together on the night.

Please also provide us with the nominee’s logos/photo and Twitter handle(s).

Nominations should be submitted before the new closing date of Tuesday 27th September 2022.
