To enter, applicants must state how they demonstrate a positive social and/or environmental impact, as well as submitting qualitative and quantitative evidence to support their application. The winner receives a £5,000 donation and each of our two highly commended applicants receive £2,500.

Our three finalists all demonstrated excellent impact measurement and reporting, including strong qualitative and quantitative evidence as well as stakeholder engagement.
Lucy Ferguson, CEO of Mediorite, received the award at our BPTA dinner on Thursday 5 October in London and commented,
“We are over the moon to have been recognised for our impact and reporting by The PwC Building Public Trust Awards. With support from the Social Entrepreneurs Club, we have worked hard to improve our reporting and to be awarded for this is a fantastic result.”
David Adair, Director of Community Engagement at PwC added
“Our Building Public Trust Award for Impact in Social Enterprise really helps to shine a light on social enterprises that are leading the way in all aspects of impact measurement and reporting.

Well done to our fantastic finalists and all of our shortlisted entries!”
