Two Dundee organisations have won a government-sponsored competition designed to help social enterprises promote themselves in their communities.
The HMS Unicorn and the Dundee Association for Mental Health (DAMH) were both selected as winners in the Brand for Growth contest, organised by the Scottish Government, Community Enterprise and the creative agency BOLD.
Both organisations successfully pitched their need to build a strong “brand” with which they could promote themselves in and around the city, and further afield.
The contest was targeted at social enterprises — businesses which make their money in responsible ways and reinvest profits in their local area.
Other winners included the Crossroads Community Hub in Ayrshire, photography social enterprise scheme Open Aye and the Kingdom Off Road Motorcycle Club in Fife.
Will Tyler-Greig, head of social enterprise at the Scottish Government, said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to these five, high-potential social enterprises.
“It’s vital that Scotland’s up-and-coming social entrepreneurs continue to receive the right support, at the right time, and BOLD is in an excellent position to provide this.”
Dundee Association for Mental Health said it was “absolutely delighted” to have been chosen as a winner.
