A global programme operated by the British Council and its partners- it supports organisations known as social enterprises which employ business approaches to meet social and environmental needs and make a positive impact in their communities.
What are social enterprises?
Social enterprises are businesses which trade in order to address social and environmental problems. They generate income like other businesses, but reinvest all or most of their profits into their social mission. They create jobs, reduce inequalities and are accountable for their actions, bringing together the entrepreneurial skills of the private sector and the values of public services.
