Last month we made the shortlist for Culture Champion at the recent Powerful Together Awards for Social Enterprises in Merseyside. This month we’re eagerly awaiting the results of our nominations at RBS SE100 and the UK Social Enterprise Awards, both national ceremonies that recognise the efforts of nominees from all over the UK.

Our very own Founder and Director, Dr Jane Davis has been shortlisted for the Women’s Champion Award at the 16th annual Social Enterprise Awards, nominated for the accolade alongside 10 other inspirational women. Not only does the award acknowledge the achievements of women working within their field, but those that empower and inspire other women to achieve.

We’re also delighted to announce that we’re in the running for the RBS SE100 Resilience Award alongside three other fantastic Social Enterprises: BELU Water, FRC Group and John Taylor Hospice. With 27 organisations in total being shortlisted in 5 categories, the awards highlight the strength of the Social Enterprise sector and its ability to create both social change and economic growth nationwide.

As both awards have been newly introduced this year, it’s an honour to be considered at such prestigious awards, but also very humbling. By gaining recognition in this way, it highlights and celebrates the work we do at The Reader Organisation. We’re immensely proud to be nominated for awards of this calibre, and hope it allows more people to find out about the work we do and inspires them to join the reading revolution!

The winner of the SEUK Women’s Champion will be announced at the Social Enterprise Awards ceremony on 26th November in London, with the winner of the RBS SE100 Resilience Award being notified on 24th November.

Fingers crossed!
