Summary 
 
Welcome to the UK’s top twenty ‘Transition oriented’ social enterprises. Combinedthese enterprises have a turnover o £3.5 million and provide paid employment ormore than 100 people. We think they’re rather brilliant examples o people
 just doing stuf…
Each o these enterprises demonstrates a dierent way o working rom business as usual – they are sustainable,oer some social benets and have shared ownership, while providing essential goods and services or thecommunity in which they make their home. They provide jobs or local people, as well as volunteering opportunities,and they buy rom other local independent businesses. Most have emerged rom a local Transition group or havelinks to Transition in some way.Individually they are great examples, but the transormative potential is really clear when we picture them alloperating together in one place… and we suggest that all o these enterprises are needed everywhere, giventhey meet our basic needs including ood, energy, transport and housing. They illustrate what a new kind o community-led, place-based economy might look like, and show that the building blocks - the viable businessmodels – are already in place and highly replicable.We know there’s a large market opportunity or a re-localised economy based around local, independent businessesand supply chains. This has been quantied in 3 sectors so ar – ood, renewable energy and retrotting homes – inREconomy’s Local Economic Blueprint work earlier this year. This top 20 provides working models or the kinds o enterprises that can turn this opportunity into reality. We oer this report as a stimulus or government, unders,the Transition movement and other community groups and entrepreneurs to see the enormous potential in thecommunity enterprise sector.
