Social Entrepreneurs change the world for the better!
We know that both locally and across the world social enterprises have, and continue to be at the forefront of the community response to COVID-19 and, despite experiencing much of the same turbulence as the communities they serve, the social enterprise movement continues to gain even more momentum than they had prior to the pandemic.
Social Enterprises in the UK are outperforming their mainstream SME counterparts in nearly every area of business and turnover growth, job creation, innovation, and impact. They exist in almost every sector, from consumer goods, healthcare, community energy, banking, restaurants, chocolate - in fact, they exist in every sector of the economy! There is nothing social enterprises can’t do and by updating our definition of business success to include aligning our business actions with our human value and making positive societal and environmental outcomes into our practices, we all win!
