Social Enterprise Award Scheme 2017

Social Enterprise Award Scheme 2017


The Government has all along been encouraging and promoting the development of social enterprises (SEs).  In 2011, the Home Affairs Bureau (HAB) and the Social Enterprise Advisory Committee (the Organiser) organised for the first time the Social Enterprise Award Scheme in recognition of outstanding SEs which operated in Hong Kong, with the aim of sharing the best practices for the sector and promoting SE’s caring culture of “Business for Good” in the community.  This year, there will be two major categories of award under the 3rd Social Enterprise Award Scheme (the Scheme). The “Outstanding SE” Award will recognise local SEs with outstanding performance and high popularity; while the “Friends of SE” Award will commend the efforts of individuals and organisations in supporting SEs so as to encourage cross-sectoral collaboration for the development of SEs.
