As a charity and service provider we believe that we are doing a great job.  We know we work hard, and we aim to always make a difference to the people we support.

That said - it is always means so much more if we are recognised outside of our organisation and our work is celebrated by organisations that benchmark and measure the quality and impact of our services.

We are proud of our recent accolades and wanted to share this with you.

The Enterprise in Society Awards 2018, in association with First Ark Social Investment, saw 200 people from across the county gather at the De Vere Hotel in Blackpool for the award ceremony, gala dinner and celebration.

More than 20 community-focused organisations were shortlisted for 8 awards, including Social Enterprise of the Year, Most Effective Collaboration and the Enabling Ability award.

“The impact these amazing businesses have really is transformative” said SELNET CEO Liz Tapner. “Each social enterprise is rooted in our communities, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people to overcome huge barriers. The successes we are celebrating tonight are felt by individuals across Lancashire who benefit from improved health and wellbeing, support to face daily challenges and newly expanded horizons”.

Birchwood was described as " a leading light for how civil society organisations can embrace social enterprise and yet retain their values, services and character.”
