We have developed a vibrant ecosystem of supporters in the UK and globally.
We have an ambitious new strategy ‘Going Mainstream’, which will look at raising the profile of social entrepreneurship and will build a movement of support to accelerate their growth and impact within our three priority areas: building access to employment; solutions for an ageing society; and resilient communities.
