What we do

Help the sector grow and prosper

We are passionately committed to social enterprise and we want to see the sector grow and prosper. The bigger and stronger the social enterprise sector, the more it can deliver for the customers and communities it serves.

Working together to create favourable conditions for social enterprise

Many of our members support social enterprises directly with help, advice and technical expertise. But we also work together to create more favourable conditions for social enterprise. For example:

  • We work with the public sector to ensure that social enterprise is recognised, understood and clearly reflected in its priorities.
  • We work with the private sector to increase the opportunities for social enterprises as sub-contractors, suppliers and partners.
  • We lobby and advocate on behalf of the sector to raise its profile and increase its influence.
  • We share information and news so that social enterprises are better connected and more informed.
  • We raise resources that will benefit the sector.
