We are thrilled to announce that The Power Platform has been Honoured For Best Community Website In the 25th Annual Webby Awards

The Power Platform offers opportunities to support, guide and share skills and has been developed by our guiding principles to Pay it forward, Be Generous and Make a Difference. We wanted to make it easier for people to develop purposeful connections, and share knowledge and skills to support each other. The quicker we grow, the more good we can deliver to benefit the whole of the UK and beyond.
“Honorees like The Power Platform are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the nearly 13,500 entries we received this year.”
The Power Platform founder, Simone Roche MBE had this to say about the news: “We’re so proud that our work on The Power Platform has received such prestigious international recognition! We created the platform as a way of enabling genuine connections and providing people with the tools that they need to take a step closer to their goals, or use their position to empower and uplift others. We’ve supported some great connections over the years, and receiving this honour really is the icing on the cake”.
