We celebrate brands who drive positive social impact in new and exciting ways. These brands look at social issues we're facing in the UK with a new lens, which create opportunities for those who are often marginalised by society.
We're giving these brands a voice, presence and platform to share their stories and products, and help them to tackle the challenges we're all trying to stop.
