We are delighted to announce that Cornerstone have been named as a finalist at the Social Enterprise Awards in the category of Overall Social Enterprise of the Year. The UK Social Enterprise Awards 2013 Awards celebrate the pioneering work of Britain’s social enterprise movement, businesses that are regenerating communities and changing lives. Now in its 15th year, the awards recognise organisations for their business excellence and contribution to society, as well as the achievements of people working at the heart of the social enterprise sector.
The winners and prizes will be announced at a Celebration Lunch in October. Prizes will be presented by John Swinney MSP at a Parliamentary Reception on 6th November 2013 (1800-2000) at Garden Lobby, The Scottish Parliament.
Edel Harris, Chief Executive of Cornerstone said, “The nomination for this award is confirmation of the dedication and commitment of our team in enabling the people we support enjoy a valued life. Our staff and volunteers, through hard work and an innovative approach to care, help to make this a reality for some of the most vulnerable people in our community, helping them to grow in confidence and creating opportunities for them that otherwise might not have been possible.
We are thrilled and excited to be recognised by Social Enterprise Scotland in this category and look forward to the upcoming awards ceremony.”
