Helping It Happen Awards



Our national Helping It Happen Awards recognise the role of estates, farms, rural businesses and individuals who are helping rural Scotland thrive. 

Whether it's through providing affordable rural housing, supporting local businesses, or working with schools to support rural skills, The Helping It Happen Awards highlight the achievements of the forward-looking businesses, estates and individuals who are making a real difference.

Please contact us at if you have any questions about the awards, or an entry you have made, and we will answer your questions or address any problems as soon as possible.

The awards are now closed for entries, with winners to be announced at a live virtual ceremony on 27 October 2021. You can now book your places to attend on our website!

Winning the SLE Helping It Happen Award for Tourism in 2017 was a pivotal moment for us. It was the first major recognition we had received for the business we had created and it gave us the drive to keep moving forward.
