Do It Award

What is the Do It Award?

Do It Awards are cash Awards of up to £5,000 plus practical support to help you turn your ideas into a reality. UnLtd will provide advice, training and mentoring for Award winners to give your venture the best chance of success, usually over a period of 12 months. The award is to support social entrepreneurs who want to create social impact and who are already established in their venture and want to tackle an issue that they are passionate about fixing.
