Ten mission-driven businesses and entrepreneurs become 2020’s NatWest Social Business Champions.

The SE100 is now in its tenth year, and celebrates the growth, impact and resilience of the UK’s best social ventures – by naming 100 of the most impressive social enterprises, 25 ‘trailblazing newcomers’ and today giving awards to outstanding achievers in eight categories.

This year’s winners were selected from almost 300 applicants and range from an ethical finance co-operative supporting farmers in Africa and Latin America to an organisation providing support to survivors of domestic abuse in Hull and a community-owned wind farm in the Outer Hebrides. 

The current coronavirus crisis has forced this year’s SE100 awards celebrations to be held virtually – the Pioneers Post team delivered the good news to the winners via Zoom calls and the beautiful, hand-made trophies are being sent out in the post.
