Following on from the success of our inaugural Steve Morgan Foundation Conference in 2018, which brought together over 200 representatives of our supported organisations, we were reminded of the skilled and entrepreneurial work force that is the powerhouse of the third sector. It has inspired us to revive the programme of Awards which we ran between 2008 and 2012, to recognise and reward outstanding service delivery and commitment.

About the Entrepreneur Awards 2019

The Awards are open to any charity or not for profit organisation within the Steve Morgan Foundation remit area of Merseyside, Cheshire (west of M6), North Shropshire and North Wales. 

Entries will be accepted online between 1st and 31st May and will close for entry at 5pm on Friday 31st May 2019. 

The four finalists for each award category will be announced in June. 

During July  you will be able to vote for the finalists for each category and voting will account towards 25% of the decision making process.

During August we will be filming all short-listed organisations, the films will be shown at the awards ceremony and will be given to all finalists for future promotion of their work.

Finalists will be invited to attend this year’s Steve Morgan Foundation conference on Friday 13th September at Carden Park Hotel, when winners will be announced at the closing ceremony.

There will be three prizes for each category: Winner £5,000 and Runners-up £1,000 (x 2).

Whilst we expect that the majority of applications will be submitted by the organisations themselves, if a third party wishes to submit on their behalf, they must have obtained the signed agreement of an authorised representative of the organisation they are nominating. 

Organisations may apply for a maximum of two categories.

Entrepreneur Award Categories

Best Entrepreneurial Charity or Social Enterprise

This Award is open to charities and not for profit companies which are demonstrating entrepreneurial flair to:

      a)  Add social value by meeting the needs of the local community

      b)  Diversify income to ensure long-term survival

The field of work is less important than the innovative way in which services are being delivered.

Charity or Social Enterprise making Greatest Local Impact

This Award is open to charities and not for profit companies which have developed services that improve the locality in which they work by:

     a)  Filling gaps in services to help improve life chances (education, employment, training, mental health  and wellbeing) 

     b)  Improving community cohesion

Charity or Social Enterprise Changing Young Lives

This Award is open to charities and not for profit companies which are providing services to children from disadvantaged backgrounds to raise aspiration and gain sustainable life skills. This can be through positive engagement, mentoring, volunteering, sport, training, etc.

Charity or Social Enterprise with Best Volunteer Team

This Award is open to charities and not for profit companies which have an active, trained volunteer force helping to deliver services. 

The field of work is less important than the two-way process of engaging and upskilling volunteers who in turn provide support through cohesive team work, befriending, peer mentoring, service delivery, turning their hand to whatever is needed at the coalface.

Outstanding Individual Contribution to Charity

This is a discretionary Award which the judges will select from entries in all categories.
