Social Enterprise UK works to support the 100,000 social enterprises in the UK to create a more equal society. Social enterprises exist in nearly every sector from consumer goods to healthcare, community energy to creative agencies, restaurants to facilities management. Well known examples include The Eden Project, Divine Chocolate and the Big Issue! There are over 100,000 social enterprises throughout the country contributing £60 billion to the economy and employing 2 million people.
They’re creating jobs and opportunities for those most marginalised from the workforce, transforming the communities they work in and making the Sustainable Development Goals a reality. It’s business for good and when they profit, society profits.
By working with the wonderful Caitlin Moran on this project, SEUK hope to highlight how social enterprises are ahead of the field both in the work they do supporting women as well as having women as a driving force, leading the sector to tackle inequality.
