The PRECIOUS Awards, the leading awards programme for women of colour in the UK, has partnered with UnLtd, the Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, to create a new awards category to recognise and support women who are driving lasting social change.
The PRECIOUS Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award is a new initiative that gives the category winner £15,000 to support their new or emerging social venture to grow.
The £15,000 is an UnLtd Grow it Award which is a package of cash and support for up to 12 months.
The cash element can be used for living costs as well as venture costs to support the social entrepreneur as they grow their venture.
You can submit an expression of interest using the button below. At this stage we’ll ask you to tell us a few ideas about yourself, the problem you’re trying to tackle, and your idea to achieve this.
Please select ‘Precious Award’ in the ‘How did you hear about us’ section.

"It’s not just that we raised money, it’s that we raised the right money from the right people. That took a long time and we went down some dead avenues. I’m really pleased with the money we did raise, and the people we raised it. It’s meant that we haven’t had to compromise what we wanted to do but we’re able to do it"
We host a series of events throughout the UK each year. From classes and conferences, seminars and workshops to networking events and training sessions.
