MEnt graduate wins Urban Hero Enterprise Award


Master of Enterprise (MEnt) graduate Laura Neilson won the Enterprise Award at last year's Urban Hero Awards for her work in the community.


Laura identified that her community, in the Fitton Hill area of Oldham, wasn’t getting the kind of health care it desperately needed.

With a small team, Laura put together a community interest company and wrote a 700 page bid for the tender – and they won it. Not yet 30, Laura now oversees four local practices.

The Urban Hero Awards are hosted by the Message Trust, an organisation that works closely with communities to engage young people and provide opportunities for them.

Here is a video detailing Laura's work and her reaction to winning the award.
