The Awards consist of two separate programmes of support; the Impact Programme and the Elevator Programme. Together these programmes cater for projects at various stages of development.

In an effort to increase awareness of the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Awards, and recognising that good solutions to social problems exist everywhere in Ireland, the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland team will be visiting 4 locations around Ireland to meet and hear from as many potential applicants as possible and answer any questions people might have about the 2015 application process.
