A good read…

I’ve just finished reading Andrew Mawson’s 2008 book “The Social Entrepreneur: making communities work” which is based on his experiences in and around Bromley-by-Bow in London.

A very interesting read, and he sets down a number of challenges on the interaction between government policy and the best ways as he sees it of encouraging more social entrepreneurs.

So, if you want a view on the last 20 years of social enterprise, a bit of inspiration, or even a metaphorical slap round the face, I’d recommend this book.
