We're a UK Social Enterprise Awards Finalist - ceremony this week!

Forty Hall Vineyard were proud to be a finalist in the UK Social Enterprise Awards, recognising businesses which are changing the world! 

We were shortlisted in the Transformative Community Business category amongst just five other locally rooted social enterprises in the UK that trade for the benefit of their community.  The shortlisting recognises our work to improve mental health and wellbeing in the community through our successful ecotherapy project. We were lucky to attend a wonderful awards ceremony at Guildhall, London and sat on the Power to Change table with some inspiring organisations including, Social Spider, a North London newspaper group that includes our local Enfield Dispatch. The Bristol Bike Project, Nuneaton Signs and the deserving winners of our category,  Homebaked Cooperative.

Social enterprises are businesses which trade for a social or environmental purpose. There are 100,000 social enterprises in the UK contributing £60bn to the UK economy, each one being set up to tackle some of the biggest challenges we face from homelessness to climate change.  

The UK Social Enterprise Awards run by Social Enterprise UK, the national membership body for social enterprises, recognise the nation’s most pioneering social enterprises. 

Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK Peter Holbrook said:

“Every year the standards of applications for the UK Social Enterprise Awards gets higher and higher. At a time when public confidence in business is at a low and when we are facing crises both political and environmental – this year’s shortlist shows how business can be used to build a better world."
