Winning the Emerging Business Excellence category validates us as a business, and reassures those who’ve supported us as a charity. The NFP challenge is to be commercially smart while retaining the charitable heart. At the end of the day, as a charity, you help no-one if you can’t run a viable business.
The Award helps us to create a narrative around our core values, one of which is aspiring to brilliance. Credibility is hard currency in our field and we want people to know that excellence permeates all of our work, not just the work we do out in the field in communities and schools.
