How it works?

We’re on a mission to find the most trusted businesses in UK. Trust is the component used to measure whether a company is delivering value consistently. The businesses that make the final of these awards will consistently deliver on the values they promote and win your loyalty time and again, simply because you know your custom will be rewarded with a top-class experience.

We want to celebrate as many great UK businesses as possible, so we’ve created nine categories and you can nominate as many businesses as you like in as many categories as you please.

For every business entered, we pledge to give one months’ supply of life-saving water to a family in need, through our partnership with the Global Giving Initiative B1G1 Business for Good.
