Breathe Arts Health Research has been named a finalist in the 2021 UK Social Enterprise Awards, recognising businesses which are transforming society.
We’re delighted that Breathe’s Founder and Managing Director, Yvonne Farquharson, is a finalist in the ‘Women In Social Enterprise Award’.
The UK Social Enterprise Awards are the biggest awards in our sector, and we are incredibly proud of Yvonne, who couldn’t be more deserving of this nomination. Since founding Breathe, Yvonne has led through adversity, when others questioned her role as a woman in leadership, her vision, and innovative ways of working, this didn’t deter her. Yvonne continued her pioneering work to improve individual health outcomes and sector-wide transformation. This includes leading Breathe to being named as a ‘New Radical’ by Nesta, winning NHS England’s ‘Innovation Challenge’ Award and Action for Children’s Arts ‘Outstanding Contribution’ award.
