WhatisSocialEnterprise?
In ‘Social Enterprise a Strategy for Success’ (2002) the UKGovernment provided this definition of social enterprise:"A social enterprise is a business with primarily social objectiveswhose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose inthe business or in the community, rather than being drivenby the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners."
Social enterprise can take many organisational forms.In the South East we include; consumer co-operatives, mutuals,housing associations, trading arms of charities, worker and consumerco-operatives, community businesses, development trusts, social firms,intermediate labour market projects and social businesses.Social enterprises can and do operate in all parts of the economy.
