GET TO KNOW US
The Local Business Awards are a social enterprise on a mission to celebrate the best local businesses in the UK. We are an independent organisation that believes celebrating local businesses on a national level can inspire a local business revolution inspiring people to support local. We also want to give people the confidence to follow their dreams and start a local business.
In 2016 our founder James Murphy broke the mould when he create The Lotus Awards. In their short history they have arguably celebrated the most diverse group of businesses and individuals of any business awards. Winners from 5 continents from charities & startups to multinationals and everything in between. We have celebrated lifetime achievement winners such as Dr Ian Dodds (Diversity & Inclusion pioneer), Jocelyn Hillman (founder of Working Chance) and Lord John Bird (Founder of The Big Issue)
Now we want to celebrate the best of British, Local, Independent businesses.
