Emmaus Merseyside has been shortlisted by the Steve Morgan Foundation’s Entrepreneur Awards and now we need your vote.

There are four award categories and Emmaus Merseyside has been shortlisted in the Best Entrepreneurial Charity or Social Enterprise category. The winners of each category will receive £5,000 and the two runners-up £1,000 each. This is where we need your support and vote to help us secure a share of the award prize fund.

Emmaus Merseyside supports formerly homeless people by providing a stable home and meaningful work for as long as they need it. The charity runs four social enterprises in Merseyside, taking in and selling donated and refurbished furniture, household goods, bric-a-brac and vintage pieces, and operating a house clearance service.

This year’s awards are a revised version of the successful Entrepreneur Awards previously organised by the Steve Morgan Foundation on an annual basis between 2008 and 2012.

It was from attending last year’s inaugural charity conference at Carden Park that Chairman of the Foundation Steve Morgan, inspired by so many examples of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, decided to bring the Awards back for this year. Steve said:

“The high standard of the applications has confirmed our view that there is a huge amount of dedication, creativity and innovation taking place within the Third Sector, and even those charities who haven’t made our shortlists should feel very proud of the work that they are doing to change the lives of people in their communities.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time to make an application and congratulate those who have made the shortlists as we move into the next stage of the judging process.”

Please take a few seconds to support our charity and click here to vote for Emmaus Merseyside. Voting will remain open until midnight on Sunday 21 July.

Thank you to everyone who is able to support us in this effort.
