Social Enterprise Places are areas where social enterprise activity is thriving. From quarters, towns, cities and zones, areas around the UK are declaring themselves as social enterprise places committed to investing in the sector.
Social Enterprise UK is recognising these hotspots of social enterprise activity by awarding them with the Social Enterprise Place badge, celebrating their achievements and supporting them to grow.
Registered Social Enterprise Places will be supported to reach out to and involve local councils, businesses, charities, consumers and budding social entrepreneurs, bringing them together to grow their social enterprise communities. The programme aims to promote, raise awareness, and build the markets for social enterprise at a local and national level.
To make Solent Social Enterprise Place more than a badge, Social Enterprise Link is asking for interested social enterprises, cooperatives and supporting organisations to become members of Social Enterprise Link. As members of the cooperative you have a one member, one vote control over the governance and policy of Social Enterprise Link. There is then a focus for the Local Economic Partnership, Local Authorities, Corporate Social Responsibility Directors and other investors to work with the sector.
