"The Social Enterprise Awards Scotland 2015 is a prime opportunity for social enterprises of all types to step up and be counted and show us how they’re changing Scotland. We urge all social enterprises to apply. Best of luck to everyone!”

Last year's Social Enterprise of the Year was Wasps Studios, which runs arts studios across Scotland.

Audrey Carlin of Wasps Studios said: “It was fantastic for Wasps to win last time. The recognition the award has given Wasps on a national level has been incredible and it has opened new doors for us as an organisation. We'd urge all Scottish social enterprises to put themselves forward for the awards this year.”
