We want to provide on this page possible support for Social Enterprises and prospective Social Enterprise, for example:

  • What governance structure would you use?
  • Where can you get advice on budget and business planning?
  • How do you ensure you can show your outcomes monitoring and you are achieving? How do you show the impact you are having?
  • What policies, insurances and work practices should you have in place?
  • Who do you go to for support and advice?

The following organisations are all working in partnership with us. It is important you choose the people that you can build a relationship with and offer you the services you need, hopefully our suggestions will be of help in your Social Enterprise development.

Looking for some free advice about your social enterprise?
