Community Interest Company / Social Enterprise: A Social Enterprise is all about combining business with social justice and using business and enterprise as a force for good and a way of enabling change. It is estimated there are over 70,000 Social Enterprises in the UK, ranging from new start-ups at the grassroots through to large multi-million-pound organisations with thousands of employees. It is a diverse and exciting movement to be part of. Social Enterprises change people’s lives in lots of different ways: through creating jobs; through preventing environmental waste; through reinvesting profits into community activity; through developing new services to help the most vulnerable.
Social Enterprises are different from traditional business in that they:
- Have a primary social mission or purpose similar to a charity;
- Don’t exist to maximise profit for shareholders;
- Don’t exist to make owners very wealthy;
- Measure the social impact and difference they make.
