The Social Business Wales Awards are part of the Social Business Wales (SBW) project which is funded by Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund. Social Business Wales is delivered by Cwmpas (new name for Wales Co-operative Centre) and is part of the Business Wales service.
This will be the 7th year of the SBW Awards, and we want to highlight, more than ever, the tremendous growth and potential of the sector and its vital contribution to communities across Wales.
This year there are 10 award categories for social enterprises to choose from and enter, including four new categories which reflect the ways that social enterprises and social entrepreneurs have really made a difference to our lives in the last 12 months.
All winners will go on to represent Wales at the Social Enterprise UK Awards in December.

Are you interested in becoming a sponsor?
If you work for a third sector organisation, public sector body or private business and you are experiencing a bit of FOMO (fear of missing out), fear not! There is another way you can get involved in this inspirational awards journey.
This year, we have a fantastic range of sponsorship options for you to consider from as little as £500 for ceremony sponsorship through to the top of the tree, all singing all dancing, headline sponsorship package.
The SBW Awards is the number one event for the social business sector in Wales and always attracts a large number of delegates, including social business staff and board members, senior civil servants, local authority directors and business support intermediaries from right across Wales.
If you are interested in sponsoring or know of an organisation that may be interested, then please get in touch with Mike Erskine, PR & Events Officer at Cwmpas: firstname.lastname@example.org / 07464548058.
