Business Resilience Awards 2022

We're hosting an awards evening to recognise the resilience shown by businesses across the Barnsley borough through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The six categories are detailed below. You can nominate any business – one that you own or run, a colleague or a friend owns or runs, or one that you’ve visited as a customer or guest.

You'll need to supply contact details for the nominated business and explain in detail the reasons why you think they should win an award.

Nominations close at midnight on Sunday 8 May 2022.
