Social Enterprise UK

Social enterprise is a movement unified by a single propposition: that we can change the world by changing the way we do business. The  2013 State of the Social Enterprise Survey signals  that the social enterprise sector is attracting entrepreneurs in ever greater numbers.

While the demographics of social enterprise workers are increasingly diverse, so are the communities they serve and the channels through which they elect to trade. Challenges are still present within the public sector, procurement and access to finance but these organsations continue to demonstrate a high level of resilience to difficult circumstances. The report also makes a number of recommendations to improve the health and capacity of social enterprise in the UK.
