Social enterprises trade to purposely improve the quality of life for the vulnerable and disadvantaged. They are in business for good. When they profit, society profits.
We can support you in turning what you love into sales, whether you are an individual or a group. That way, you will combine the best of both worlds – run your business while you offer social good. You will also be joining over 100,000 social enterprises in the UK which contribute £60 billion to the economy and employ over two million people to create jobs, training and meaningful work-based experiences.
