Melanie Bryan wins Big Society Award

Through her social enterprise – WhyNotChange – which builds the confidence and capability of individuals and organisations to make a positive difference, Melanie has given her time to inspire and work with hundreds of women, young people, social enterprises, charities and businesses.
Her achievements include setting up an award winning enterprise event for women across the North West, providing practical enterprise support to students and setting up an award winning consortium of charities and social enterprises to win public sector contracts. The Prime Minister said on the award win: “Melanie is an inspiration and clearly has great energy and passion to change people’s lives. Her work to support enterprise in the North West and help others get on in life is to be greatly admired. She is the embodiment of the Big Society at work, and while not everyone will have the time and energy of Melanie I hope it will inspire others to think about the small things they can do to make a big difference in their community.”

Melanie Bryan said: “This is a huge and very unexpected honour. It’s a fantastic accolade not only for us, but also for the amazing people and organisations who have joined us on our journey, generously giving their time, skills and experience. If everybody makes just one small change the cumulative impact would be phenomenal. We hope that our story will encourage you to believe that you too can make a positive difference and to start taking action today to make it happen. ”

On behalf of Sistatalk I would like to extend our congratulations and best wishes for this amazing award. Keep up the good work. Sonia Brown MBE Founder, Sistatalk
