Social Enterprise Awards 2017

The winners of the UK Social Enerprise Awards for 2017 were announced at a prestigious event held on the 23rd of November in central London, and recognises organisations for their business excellence and contribution to society, as well as the achievements of people working at the heart of the sector.


We are delighted that Community Dental Services  secured the Health and Social Care Social Enterprise Award


Community Dental Services are an employee-owned social enterprise and CIC with a clear and unique ambition - to make sure everybody, especially vulnerable and marginalised groups, receives the oral healthcare and information they need to thrive. They do this by working with the NHS, businesses, schools, community groups and other organisations to bring the best clinical dental services and oral health information to the people that traditional dental services are often unable to reach. Based in Bedford, they now operate across multiple locations in the UK.
