Local Leeds social enterprise Phoenix Health and Wellbeing has been awarded one of the UK’s most prestigious business awards. In an announcement today, 29th April 2021, the Charity heard that it has been recognised for its outstanding commitment to sustainable development.
Of the 205 organisations from across the UK that have been personally chosen by Her Majesty The Queen to receive an award, Phoenix Health and Wellbeing is just one of 17 in the Sustainable Development category.
Commenting on the announcement, Phoenix Health and Wellbeing’s founder Gill Trevor said: “We are absolutely over the moon, this is an incredible honour and it will have a hugely beneficial impact on our social enterprise.
“It has already given us all an enormous morale boost. Everyone at Phoenix is so dedicated and has worked incredibly hard over the past 12 months supporting our clients whose lives have been heavily impacted during the pandemic. It will also help raise awareness about the services we provide so that more people in Leeds will be able to get the health and wellbeing support they need regardless of their income.
“And, I really hope it will inspire other business owners to create social enterprises, there still aren’t enough of us about. I can thoroughly recommend it, there’s nothing quite like the positivity gained from running a successful socially sustainable business, it’s the best Karma there is!”
