SE100 Awards 2019 update: We won!

29 March 2019

We’re delighted to say that P3 were the winners of the ‘Resilience’ category at last night’s SE100 Awards 2019!

The award was given in acknowledgement of P3’s ability to ‘weather the storm’: overcoming significant challenges during recent years and responding to unprecedented crisis whilst continuing to deliver and expand services for vulnerable and socially excluded people across the country.

This included setting up two social impact bonds to work holistically with people who have been rough sleeping in Gloucestershire and Lincolnshire, and gaining several new contracts in areas like Cambridgeshire over the last twelve months.

P3 can trace its history back to 1972, and since becoming ‘P3: People, Potential, Possibilities’ in 2003, has transformed from a local faith-led charity to a national social enterprise, covering 16 counties in the UK.

The judges said they were “impressed with the agility of the organisation, enabling it to deal with a fundamental surge in activities and continue its planned growth and evolution.”

Strength in social enterprise

Amongst the other six winners, in a line up called 'the strongest field yet', were Creating Enterprise, (Growth Champion Award) a manufacturing and construction social enterprise helping people to access employment and training, and InHouse Records (Trailblazing Newcomer Award), a record label offering creative opportunities to people in prisons and communities, aiming to reduce violent crime and reoffending.



In response to winning the Resilience category, CEO Mark Simms said:

“I’m delighted that the work of the whole P3 team is recognized in this award. Our staff, clients and volunteers work tirelessly to support the people living in their communities, through thick and thin, the good times and the bad.

“I’m really proud to lead a team of exceptional, kind, compassionate and resilient people.”
