* 1. Everyday Impact - New Enterprises

We all have a story about someone who gets off their backside and achieves something positive for the cause they care about. These are the people or organisations that have a clear vision for change. They engage and involve others to bring about real and concrete results that can be seen and felt on a daily basis. An everyday impact could be made by a person who devises a recreation scheme for communities around the country or their local area for sports or arts in recent years (less than five).

The applicant must be based in the UK but their work can be international.
