Social Enterprise

Key areas for consideration when seeking to establish a social enterprise includes: -

What is the purpose - What are you seeking to achieve by becoming a social enterprise? For example;

  • Provides an opportunity for local people to gain employment

  • Brings about a positive change to people and communities

  • Social benefits – provides facilities to disadvantaged people

  • Profits/surpluses are ploughed back into the organisation to further the social, objectives. This could be used to develop new products/services/activities

  • People have more ownership

  • Provides a formal recognised structure for your enterprise

  • Gives the flexibility and freedom of being able to trade commercially whilst still fulfilling social aims

Social enterprises should:

  • Have a clear social and/or environmental mission set out in their governing documents

  • Generate the majority of their income through trade

  • Reinvest the majority of their profits back into their social objectives

  • Not linked to public sector organisation / the State

  • Be Managed and developed in the interests of the social mission

  • Be open, transparent and accountable to key stakeholders
