As a society we are stuck in an impasse.We have a welfare state system that we know is ill-equipped to deal with many of the modern social problems it has to confront.Yet we are unable to sanction radical reforms to make welfare more affordable and more effective.

Social entrepreneurs will be one of the most important sources of innovation. Social entrepreneurs identify under-utilised resources – people, buildings, equipment – and find ways of putting them to use to satisfy unmet social needs. They innovate new welfare services and new ways of delivering existing services. Social entrepreneurs who deploy entrepreneurial skills for social ends are at work in parts of the traditional public sector, some large private sector corporations and at the most innovative edge of the voluntary sector.
