Community awards open for entries

RURAL communities are invited to enter a competition that recognises the way services can be improved when people work together.

The Rural Community Co-operative Awards celebrate inspirational initiatives that have made a real difference to individuals within their community.

They showcase the co-operatives from helping to overcome social isolation and loneliness to addressing specific health issues.

The awards also recognise innovative business practices from both established rural co-operatives, as well as newer enterprises.

The Plunkett Foundation is inviting enterprises from across England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland to apply and help to inspire other communities to improve rural lives and livelihoods through co-operation.

Winners will receive a £500 cash prize to reinvest in their community enterprise

Shortlisted finalists you will receive a free ticket to the Community Co-operative Networking Event and Plunkett Foundation AGM.

The awards are kindly supported by a range of organisations, representatives of which make-up the judging panel.

Applicants should be a community co-operative enterprise such as a shop, bakery, café, garage, pub, bookshop or gym.

The deadline for entries is Thursday, 30 April. For full details, click here.
