John Taylor Hospice is a finalist in this year’s Social Enterprise Awards from SEUK

Finalists for the UK Social Enterprise Awards 2019 have just been announced, and Birmingham’s own John Taylor Hospice has been nominated in the ’employee engagement’ category.

The awards, hosted by national membership body SEUK recognise businesses that give back, enrich communities and make a contribution to society, as well as those who lead them – the social entrepreneurs who use their business acumen to help tackle social and environmental problems both in Britain and abroad.

The Awards recognise the achievements of social enterprises and supporters in fourteen different categories, including Social Enterprise of the Year, Women’s Champion, ‘Buy Social’ Market builder and the One to Watch.

John Taylor Hospice (which we have written about here on many occasions) was founded in 1910 and is one of the oldest non-denominational hospices in the UK. It was also the first ‘new mutual’ — or social enterprise — hospice, leaving the NHS in in 2011 under the Department of Health’s Right to Request process to operate as a new independent Community Interest Company (CIC).

The awards ceremony this year takes place on the 4th December at London’s iconic Guildhall.

Congratulations to everyone at JTH.
