SEUK

Social Enterprise UK believes in a fairer, more equal society and we believe that social enterprises are the best way to achieve this.
Social enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. Like traditional businesses they aim to make a profit through selling goods or services, but it’s what they do with their profits that sets them apart – reinvesting or donating them to create positive social change. Social enterprises are tackling social problems, improving people’s life chances, providing training and employment opportunities for those furthest from the market, supporting communities and helping the environment. This is why we work so hard to support them.
Our mission is to achieve a fairer world, by creating an environment in which social enterprises can amplify their social echo.

Social Enterprise UK works to support the 100,000 social enterprises in the UK to create a more equal society. Social enterprises exist in nearly every sector from consumer goods to healthcare, community energy to creative agencies, restaurants to facilities management. Well known examples include The Eden Project, Divine Chocolate and the Big Issue! There are over 100,000 social enterprises throughout the country contributing £60 billion to the economy and employing 2 million people.

They’re creating jobs and opportunities for those most marginalised from the workforce, transforming the communities they work in and making the Sustainable Development Goals a reality. It’s business for good and when they profit, society profits.

By working with the wonderful Caitlin Moran on this project, SEUK hope to highlight how social enterprises are ahead of the field both in the work they do supporting women as well as having women as a driving force, leading the sector to tackle inequality.
