The Fermanagh Trust is delighted to be supporting our social enterprises by sponsoring the ‘Social Enterprise of the Year Award’ as part of the Fermanagh Herald’s Business Awards. In their second year, the Business Awards is Fermanagh’s leading forum for acknowledging and rewarding local business determination and success.
The judges are looking for a social enterprise which makes an outstanding contribution to their local community in terms of social, economic or environmental improvements. A social enterprise which makes a difference, which inspires and motivates and whose work is both entrepreneurial and makes a fantastic contribution to the community. The winner will receive a £1000 grant from the Fermanagh Trust towards its work.
Lauri McCusker, Director of the Fermanagh Trust said “This is a fantastic opportunity for Fermanagh’s social enterprises to highlight their success. It is important we recognise those businesses with primarily social objectives and who reinvest for that purpose in the enterprise or in the community”.
