What is Social Enterprise

A Social Enterprise is an umbrella term used to cover a wide spectrum of businesses trading with a social purpose.

A Social Enterprise evolves when a group of people who share the same aims and vision come together to create a business that benefits the community, with no personal profit or gain.

This may be achieved by creating a service or product that is financially viable and benefits the social purpose.
