B6: Social Enterprise
In October 2001, the Government launched the Social Enterprise Unit (SEU) as evidence of their commitment to moving the social enterprise agenda forward. This was in response to the growing number of social enterprises, which were helping to increase economic activity and employability in local communities.
The SEU went on to launch its Social Enterprise Strategy earlier this year, which triggered renewed attention on the topic from the press. This bulletin looks at that media coverage of social enterprise in recent months.
