Social Enterprise Mark holders BITA Pathways and FRC Group, and Gold Mark holder John Taylor Hospice have been shortlisted for the NatWest SE100 Awards 2015.
The winners will win a share of over £32, 000 in prize money that will be awarded at the NatWest SE100 Annual Awards on 19th October 2015, at the Good Deals social investment conference in London.
Shortlisted for the Impact Champion award, FRC Group aims to reduce and ultimately eradicate furniture poverty, by campaigning to raise awareness and create practical solutions to get furniture to people who need it, as well as creating sustainable employment.
Julie Baker, Head of Enterprise at NatWest, said: “Social Enterprises make a massive difference to local economies and communities across the UK and beyond. They are run by inspirational people who want to make a difference. That is why at NatWest we want to support them to get access to the finance, support and networks they need to flourish. That way not only do they benefit, but the economy benefits and our society benefits. We congratulate all shortlisted enterprises and look forward to celebrating their success at the awards ceremony on 19th October.”
